This is a complex question. We grade tonsil size by how large they are with respect to the tonsillar pillars. 1+ is small and in the fossa, 2+ is no larger than the fossa but to the fossas, 3 + larger than the fossa or pillars, 4+ touching each other. As we get older the tonsils should recede and get smaller. Enlarged tonsils decrease the size of ...Read more

Could a first molar eruption cause enlarged submandibular node in a child? The node is 1.7 CM w/ bening features in us ('"reactive node").
Yes, but...: A molar eruption, mouth sores, gum damage, or anything else in that part of the mouth can lead to an enlarged node nearby (such as submandibular or neck nodes).

US detected 33 mm enlarged node in submandibular, 5 days later MRI of neck just detected 6mm enlarged node in submental!which one is more reliable?
They both: should be reliable. A lymph node has three dimensions, and some protocols are based on measuring the shortest dimension(short axis diameter), while others may measure the node in the longest dimension(long axis diameter). So you may be getting different(yet accurate) measurements of the same node. Or they could be different lymph nodes. Talk to your doctor, the 2 studies need to be correlated. ...Read more

Are healthy but large adenoids in a 4 year old expected to shrink enough in 1 or 2 years to avoid tonsil-adenoidectomy to treat mild osa?
Possibly: At birth, your tonsils and adenoids (t&a) are small and your immune system is immature. Your t&a are immunological structures and make antibodies to pathogens, like bacteria and viruses; so as you grow, they grow and enlarge, doing their job. Our immune system is relatively mature at 5 to 7 years of age, when the t&a peak in size. They then usually shrink to become small again by preteen/teenager. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
