In brief: One tonsil hurts
It is not unusual for one tonsil to get inflammed, infected and enlarged.
Inflammed or infected tonsils can hurt and you can experience pain or difficulty while swallowing. Have your primary provider examine you. They may want to do a throat culture to rule out a bacterial infection.

In brief: One Big Tonsil
Commonly, one tonsil will be bigger after an infection.
The swelling should resolve over four - six weeks. If the one tonsil remains enlarged, go back to see your doctor.
