Couldn't find what you looking for?


Hi! I'm 13 and I had my tonsils out when I was 9. Since then I have had sore throats but only thru viruses. However recently I have been getting sore throats that are more painful than I remember from tonsillitis. Is it possible that my tonsils have grown back??


Hi there, it is highly unlikely your tonsils have grown back.  Now that doesn't mean that they can't, if they left some of the tissue (didn't clear it all out at the time of removal) then yes there is a possibility that they could.  Talk to your parents about this and ask them maybe they will schedule you a doctors appointment that the doctor could see what's going on.
