I was wondering, I've been having tonsillitis problems for about almost a year now and I feel as tho my thyroid might be getting affected by this. Lately I've been feeling a little swelling on both sides of my throat around the thyroid area. What I'm confused about is that is it possible for tonsillitis to affect the thyroid glands? A ENT specialist told me that you might feel a little swelling around the lower portion of the neck but it's really been bothering me lately. Would removing the tonsils help this?
