I've had a swollen tonsil for about a year. It's not painful at all and doesn't affect breathing much. What can I take to make the swelling go down?

In brief: Consult an ENT dr

If you had this "swelling" for one year, most likely is not a "swelling" but an "enlargement" or hypertrophy.
Please, consult with an ENT specialist. The treatment could be surgical (if it's really symptomatic).

See an ENT doctor as it could be a tumor or something benign.
Best to get it checked out asap.
