Tonsils (tonsillitis) two ovoid masses composed of lymphoid tissue situated on either side of the throat at the back of the mouth, between the pillars of the fauces (the arch of soft palate). The tonsils act as a filter against infection organisms. They can, however, become diseased or chronically enlarged.
This is more prevalent in childhood and early life. Symptoms are fever, sore throat, and tiredness along with cold symptoms, such as a cough and a runny nose. The tonsils and adenoids are tissues in the throat that assist in making antibodies to help dispute infections.
