Hi,

Although the tonsils and thyroid gland are close they have different functions. Tonsils are so called immunocompetent tissue that is acting like defensive mechanism of first line against ingested pathogens. When they fail to do this, they usually tend to get inflamed and this condition is called tonsillitis.

Thyroid on other hand is a gland that is largest endocrine gland in the body. This gland regulates the speed of energy consumption of body. It also makes proteins and controls the sensitivity of production of hormones of other glands.

Why are you asking this? Have you had any complications with any of these organs? Conditions that may happen are curable but sometimes surgery is necessary.

 

I hope this helped

So I have dentist stating probably need tonsils remove, but per ultra sounds of thyroid shows 2 “small”cysts that are being watched. I am thinking remove now before the cysts get larger? Any ideas if this would cause tonsils to always be large?
