Had tonsil infection. Have nasal drip, swelling. Family history of lymphoma

Hi, I had an infection in my left tonsil a while back and antibiotics took the white spots away and the swelling went down a decent amount. It still looks larger than the other tonsil though. I have constant nasal drip, especially on the left side. I noticed that there might be another little bit of swelling beneath that left tonsil now, too. Thinking I need to go get it checked out again. It s really bothering me because my grandma was diagnosed with lymphoma again and I am paranoid. Thank you!

General Surgeon 's  Response
Most probably you got Tonsillitis on left side.
Because of the Antibiotics,it got reduced to decent size.
I think that the infection hasn't subsided yet,so it has spread to the tissue surrounding it with associated inflammation.
It will be relieved with appropriate Antibiotic and Antiinflammatory drugs.
Lymphoma is a disease of Lymphnodes.Lymphnodes are not seen by opening of mouth.They can be palpated from outside, in the neck region commonly.
But,Please consult your ENT surgeon and get it diagnosed
wish you good health
