what causes inflamed tonsils, what are the symptoms and treatment ?

Bacteria vs virus

Antibiotics
There are a few ways your tonsils could get inflamed. Usually it would start with a viral infection. If the body can't fight it appropriately, then it can become bacterial. This may take 5-7 days . At this point you may need antibiotics.

Can I be on a latent tb treatment and go in for surgery to remove my tonsils and possibly my adenoids?

Yes

Tuberculosis
Latent TB is not a clinical or obvious illness. So you are not contagious...Therefore surgery on your tonsils/Adenoids should not be any problem if you are otherwise healthy and fit.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

A throat culture test I had showed Staphylococcus aureus. Should I undergo antibiotic treatment or have my tonsils removed? Thank you!

I don't think so

Neck-throat
Maybe half of humankind have some strain or other of this bug on board. I've always had some of them when I've bothered to culture my throat. People forget that many bacteria, even many of those capable of causing disease, are ordinary members of our microbial community. Staph's more of a problem for that pilonidal cyst -- the microbe likes to infect these. Get your surgery if required.

My sons tonsils are really swollen he is not ill and his uvula is forked but attached ti his tonsils what treatment will the hospital do?

Depends on variables

Uvula
The tonsils grow faster than kids until about age 8 ,then slow while the kid continues to grow larger.By the teen years, the tonsils have the same relative size they had in infancy unless they have had many infections.A forked uvula is an interesting feature often connected to a mild posterior cleft palate.Unless the kid has sleep apnea, recurrent disease or other issue, the tonsils are left alone

Dr. Harold H. Kim answered:

Ive had a sore throat & swollen tonsils for +7 months. It is not bacterial and the Dr. believes it to be Viral. What are the treatment options?

Surgery

Neck-throat
After a certain point, your tonsils, following multiple and chronic infections, can remain chronically inflamed. If it is chronically painful and enlarged or recurrently infected, a tonsillectomy can be considered. Consult your ENT to discuss this further.

I have OSA and am waiting for treatment (removing tonsils). is there anything I can do while im waiting for treatment. I have 12 interruptions an hour?

There are a few...

Sleep_apnea
OSA can certainly be troubling. By now you have probably already tried most of the standard suggestions: Lose weight if you are overweight. Elevate head of bed. Use cool mist humidifier. Avoid alcohol or sleep aids at bedtime. Trial of nasal decongestant. Trial of Breathe Right nasal strips (Yes, like the NFL football players wear!). CPAP use--which is probably the most effective non-surgical tx.
