R info that might be of help? Customer : not really, he played archery for a full day yesterday and felt fine. Today he feels a bit tired. I asked him if there was any pain and he said no his throat just feels a bit weird dr. Sam : ok customer : he does seem to have blocked sinuses dr. Sam : well the swelling in the tonsil can be due to chronic tonsillitis as wel. The treatment of this condition totally depends on the correct diagnosis. This will be done on biopsy and it may not turn out to be cancer. The swollen lymph node can be secondary to chronic tonsillitis as well. I am not saying that it can not be cancer. It can be a cancer but one should not jump to conclusions so early customer : but he doesnt have a sore throat? Dr. Sam : you have mentioned that he has blocked sinuses. He may not be having sore throat all the time but recurrent attacks can do so. Blocked sinuses can result in infection which can trigger this. Dr. Sam : even with cancer, it does not mean that he is going to die. Customer : would he have have had some of the other symptoms of cancer? He has a really normal appetite and no weight loss at all? Dr. Sam : there are surgeries that can remove the cancer that can be followed by radiotherapy and chemotherapy if required. The prognosis would depend on the stage of cancer if biopsy shows so dr. Sam : there should be but it can be some benign condition customer : such as what? Dr. Sam : a benign tumor may be customer : so its probably not an infection then? Dr. Sam : it cannot be ruled out without biopsy. We can talk about chances that one possibility is more likely than other but cannot rule out any without tetsts dr. Sam : as in your case, chances of it being a tumor are more than infection dr. Sam : also it can be a benign hyperplastic reaction in the tonsil that can be caused by a hodgkin lymphoma in the lymph node. Dr. Sam : what i want to say is that the disease may be in the lymph node and the tonsil may have swollen as a reaction. Customer : so will he be able to be treated?
