What do my tonsils do?

Your tonsils help prevent diseases by trapping and destroying harmful germs that enter your body through your mouth and nose.

Tonsils are small masses of a special kind of tissue called “lymphoid tissue.” Your tonsils are located at the sides of the throat at the back of your mouth.

Small Masses

Tonsils have a special job.  They help prevent diseases by trapping harmful bacteria and other germs that enter your body through your mouth and nose.

The lymphoid tissue forms white blood cells, the germ fighters of the blood, which surround the invading germs and destroy them.

Sometimes disease germs cause the tonsils themselves to become infected.  Then the tonsils become sore and inflamed.

A mild case of tonsillitis usually goes highly in four or five days.  And it’s good to know that your tonsils won’t be missed at all if they have to be taken out.

Still other small growths of lymphoid tissue that line the throat help guard against diseases.

Normally, your tonsils become smaller in adulthood and may even disappear. – Dick Rogers

  2. Hi, I’m new to running a blog and internet sites in general and was curious about how you got the “www” included in your web address name? I see your domain, “https://askpari.wordpress.com/2012/06/17/what-do-my-tonsils-do/” has the www and my web address looks like, “http://mydomain.com”. Do you know the correct way I can change this? I’m using WordPress. Appreciate it
