Our expert says:
Your tonsils are of no value after the age of four years, and one should consider having them removed. If they cause problems in an adult, this can make you very ill, and the "heart pain" should be investigated.
Please see your GP for an examination and a referral to an ENT surgeon to establish whether you have the correct indications for a tonsillectomy. You should discuss the pro's and con's in detail in order to make an informed decision.
