My tonsiles are swollen, I treated it how i normally do with alcohol to burn the bacteria then put on salt which reduces the swelling and makes it go away. Something was different this time because when I woke up I started to cough up some blood 2-3 times when spitting.

Hi all I ve had a swollen left tonsil for less than a week atleast that s when I noticed it. It scared me I went to dentist had an oral cancer exam done she said all looks good but my left tonsil did look a lil swollen. She said I should go see an ent well with the holidays and everything I m unable to see an ent for a couple weeks. There is no pain no white spots it looks like it may be a little more red than my right tonsil. Just kinda feels like I got something caught in the back of my throat. I ve gargles warm salt water and a few times I gargled hydrogen peroxide/warm salt water. Every morning I wake up hoping the feeling goes away but it s there, if I didn t scare myself by looking tho up on the internet is probably not really notice it. I haven t felt sick really. Kinda scared thinking it might be tonsil cancer.
