Hello and welcome to HCM

Allergy is known to cause polyps in the nasal cavity. These polyps are usually multiple and re-occur when exposed to allergic stimuli.
An ENT examination and removal is required.
A polyp or other growths can appear on the tonsil.
Removal is required for these lesions.
However, if allergy is the underlying cause treatment of allergy is required to completely celar the polyps.

Thanks and take care
