However, sometimes the tonsils themselves can become infected, leading to a condition called tonsillitis.

Symptoms of tonsillitis can include:

  • Bad breath
  • Red, swollen tonsils with white or yellow patches

Tonsillectomy is a common treatment for persistent or severe tonsillitis.

In many cases, especially in childhood, the tonsils play an essential role in the immune system's development and may shrink in size as a person gets older. However, they generally continue to function as part of the body's defense against infections.
