Q.

Tonsil

My son is 3 years old and my wife thinks that we should have his tonsil removed.She belives that by removing it he would not get sick all the time.(he is not suffering with his tonsils) Is it a good idea to remove his tonsil although he is not suffering with it.

Thank you

Paediatrician

There is absolutely no reason to remove healthy normal tonsils in a child.If your child is always ill please have him checked by your paediatrician.
