Swollen tonsil and lymph node. Habit of smoking weed. How to get rid of the habit?

I have recently equired a swollen tonsil and lymph node on the right side of my throat . I have seen my doctor a couple of times and he s not been able to come up with anything. I also have been smoking a lot of weed and from what I ve read on the internet, I m not the only one with this problem. My question is, what is it... Why is it happening, and how do I get rid of it... Hopefully for good?

I am Dr Ravinder Sharma ENT surgeon
Enlargement of tonsil on one side and a node in neck is not a good sign. It needs to be attended fast. With the history of smoking ther are more chances that in may be malignant (cancerous). I would advise you to stop smoking immediately and consult a ENT surgeon. You may require some tests in addition to get the correct diagnosis.

I hope this answers your concern. Feel free to contact me if you require more information about it
