In brief: Choices

There are lote of reasons we recommend tonsillectomy: *repeated infections, *commplicated infection, *asymmetry which is supicious for cancer, *enlargement that blocke breathing, speaking or swallowing, * bad breath and tonsil stones.
.. Knowing if it's right for a particular person depends on the conversation had with a physician. We have some guidelines to help decide.
