Welcome to icliniq.com.
I read your query and can understand your concern. In the images (attachment removed to protect the patient’s identity), the entire tonsil and oropharynx are not visible. But, the visualized areas do not show any sinister growth or ulceration, and the uvula appears central. Tonsils can persist in about 10 to 15 percent of adults, however, when they are asymmetrical (i.e. of different sizes) there is a risk of underlying cancer. Hence, it is of utmost importance to see both tonsils together along with the whole throat and some close-up images of the tonsils individually. If you could provide these images, I would be able to make a more accurate and comprehensive diagnosis. Also, can you kindly elaborate on any other throat symptoms, any tonsil surgery in the past, and smoking or alcohol history? And any history of significant diseases or treatments including cancer.
