Welcome in H.C.M.

I have gone through your query regarding some thing is stuck on the tonsil of your girl friend, though she is not having any pain over it.

Symptoms and description of tonsil of your girl friend indicates that most probably she is suffering from chronic tonsillitis with polyp.

Such types of tonsils are always treated by operation, because such enlarged tonsils with polyp usually produces chronic obstruction in respiration and makes the patient potential for COPD.
