Well, congratulations on the negative biopsy!  I hope you do get to the bottom of what's bothering you, but what a relief to find that it's not cancer!

I would let them biopsy lymph nodes before removing any. if god forbid you do have acner they will radiate those and kill any cancer cells. I had a lymph node removed to "biopsy" it and have neck problems, not big. Another eprson told me his doctor said "why remove them when we will radiate them anyway"

Consider that please.

Now tonsil. they will put you to sleep. i had tonsil cancer that spread to the lymph node. At age 59 they took out both tonsils. me? Didn't have much pai but all 4 sibling have our tonsils. I was always sick as a kid and as an adult, colds, sore throats. Remving them fixed that.

My 24 year old daughter after I had mine removed said she wanted hers removed. She also had sore throats. For her it was painful for 2 weeks afterwards. but she's happy she did it, colds and flu has greatly decresed.

have them take out the tonsils. Honest.

Hoping all of teh rest is OK

Hi Essen - I hope they find whatever is causing you to have symptoms but it is very relieving to know that it doesn’t seem to be cancer! Best of luck, N

I had 3 biopsies on my tonsils.

the first I was put under a general anesheshia . . was told they needed a big chunk for that one.  The 2nd one they were checking another hot spot & swollen area found on the other tonsil by my scan.  It was scheduled in the office the next day.  I was scared, but was told I could drive myself, not a big deal.  I wish I had someone else driving cause all the way home I was choking and gagging on my own phlem because the local also numbed my entire throat.  I had to pull over several times to get my breath and feel safe driving.  The biopsy itself was no big deal.  I thought I had an active gag reflex, but my ENT told me I was better than agerage.  The 3rd time I had someone drive, but didn't need to.  Go figure, right?  Even with the same person, the results can be different. 

I have a scope now every 6 months now.  I'm 3 1/2 years out and still NED.  although they feel funny, I've never had any trouble with them.
