My Tonsils Have To Be Removed!
Have you ever had tonsillitis? That’s when your tonsils, in the back of your throat, get sore and infected. If tonsillitis happens to you a lot, the doctor may suggest you have an operation to remove your tonsils. No more tonsils, no more tonsillitis! Or, you may have really large tonsils that make it harder for you to breathe at night. That’s another reason the doctor may say they should come out.
What are tonsils? Your tonsils are two lumps of tissue that work as germ fighters for your body. The trouble is that sometimes germs like to hang out there where they can cause infections. So, your tonsils can start causing more problems than they solve!
In today's Spotlight On Health, read more about tonsils and why sometimes it's better to get them removed.
