Questions about Tonsillectomy

Is the surgical removal of both tonsils (small masses of lymphoid tissue at the back of the mouth, on either side of the throat).

Infected or enlarged tonsils may cause chronic or recurrent sore throat, bad breath, dental malocclusion, abscess, and upper airway obstruction causing difficulty with swallowing, snoring or sleep apnea.

A tonsillectomy can be performed in cases of recurrent tonsilitis, sleep apnea and some speech disorders.
