My son is having issues in his throat for 6 months making him very sick and not as active or outgoing due to feeling ill all the time. His dad had lymphoma in his thyroid and had half removed. My son had enlarged tonsils with pitting and complains of soreness in his thyroid area. Also get smelly breathe and yellow tongue and constantly feels sick, sometimes worse than others. Finding it almost impossible to get help from peadiatrician or ENT who said it's not tonsilitus. Which I already know that! They just keep giving him reflux meds which aren't helping. Its seriously affecting his quality of life.
