Causes of swollen tonsil no pain
Hi,
I have had a swollen tonsil for a few weeks now (I didn't notice it until after I had a two day sore throat).  The tonsil does not hurt at all and the swelling seems to be part of the tonsil.  When I look at it with a light the skin looks like the same as the other tonsil which is normal.  However, when I push my tongue down I can see large white spots that are painless, where the tonsil connects to the base of the throat. When I push on the spots no puss or anything is produced.
I had my dental exam 6 weeks ago.  If I had had this then would the dentist probably have noticed it?
I have no other symptoms.
Is this normally how tonsil cancer looks (like the tonsil is just larger than normal)?
Also, if this is my only symptom so far, would it probably be early stages?
Are there any other possibilities for this?
Thank you for any help.
