    The anchor's condition happens when tonsils which act as filters to trap germs that could otherwise enter your airways and cause infection to become infected.

    When they become overwhelmed by bacteria or viruses, tonsils swell and become inflamed, and that condition is known as tonsillitis.

    According to medics, tonsils are an important part of the immune system throughout life, and it is best to avoid removing them.

    However, if tonsillitis is recurrent or persistent, or if they are enlarged tonsils cause difficulty when eating, surgical removal of the tonsils, called tonsillectomy, may be necessary.
