In the last week, I have been gargling salt water twice a day but it has made no difference, I am about to register at my local GP and try to get an appointment, I am worried it might be tonsil cancer as the left is so much bigger and more inflamed than the right even after doing everything I'm supposed to do to treat glandular fever and has that has worked to an extent on my right tonsil. I would like to know if anyone thinks I would qualify to get my tonsils removed and if anyone can give me advice on how to get better quickly. Thanks to anyone who's taken the time to read all of this:)
This is a MoneySaving site. If you have a medical problem, please use NHS Direct or go to your doctor. This forum, and the Health, Beauty and Fashion board in particular, are not the place to discuss it.
The Health board is for discussion of all issues surrounding health, diet, nutrition and how they relate to MoneySaving. Discussing medical insurance policies, cheaper ways to see consultants, cashback for alternative health treatments, how to get specific medication cheaper (legally) are all perfectly acceptable forms of discussion.
It is very specifically and strictly not for the discussion of what to do in the event of certain medical problems. Please do not ask questions about this.
Even though medically-qualified people sometimes visit these forums, we would ask them to refrain from answering specific medical questions. This leaves us open to somebody coming on, pretending to be a doctor when they're not, and giving advice.
You need to try to speak with your new GP or maybe read this:
