My son has had recurring white spot on right side of throat. It comes and goes without any pain but just a feeling of something lodged in throat. Had a course of penicillin couple of weeks ago seemed to clear it but 4 days ago it was back again. Took him to see Doctor and has been given stronger dose of penicillen. The gland on right side of neck enlarged which has worried me considerably, doctor has suggested if swelling hasn't gone down in approx 2wks we should pos think of tonsilectomy. Is this something serious. I'm worried sick. Son is 16 btw.
