How are growth charts developed?

Lots of measuring

Clinics
The Children's Hospital in Denver became famous for collecting growth curves for many of the children followed in their clinics. Infant formula companies printed them up and gave them out free to all pediatricians. We then realized that different groups of children grow at different rates. Different ethnic groups have their own curves and children with CP, Downs, etc. have their own curves.

Similar growth back behind tonsils both sides of mouth. Long and flat any idea what maybe. Going to doctor tomorrow.?

Lateral bands

Mouth
These are called lateral pharyngeal bands. Similar to the tonsils they possess lymphocytes (white blood cells). They are not growths but can become swollen with infection. As long as you are seeing your physician tomorrow, he or she may be able to reassure you. However, the fact they are symmetrically enlarged, strongly suggest that this is not serious.

Tonsil growth

Cancer
There are several types of tonsil growths that are not cancers. Each can be different. One of the most common is a mucocele. This has a very smooth ball-like appearance that is yellow or tan in color. Other tonsil growths will simply look like the tonsil is simply bigger. Cancerous growths of the tonsils will look like it has multiple heads or a crater or ulcer with an "angry" appearance.

Growth

Hello, I have to say that it is hard to imagine what type of growth may cause your symptoms without a careful examination and endoscopy. I would recommend you see your ENT doctor for a complete evaluation and possibly imagery.

I woke up this morning with the feeling that something was stuck in my tonsil. However after inspection I found a small BLACK growth. Any ideas?

Get checked

Fungus
Although at your age, something bad seems improbable, black lesion could either be a small area of dead tissue as a result of infection, fungus or an actual tissue growth. Best to get this checked at your earliest opportunity. Depending on what it is, you may need a biopsy, tonsillectomy or some other medical treatment. Best to get it figured out soon. Best of luck to you.
