Caption: Enlarged tonsils seen at the back of a patient's mouth during a throat examination. The enlargement is due to hypertrophy, where an organ or structure swells in size. The palatine tonsils are areas of lymphoid tissue in the throat, one set on either side. Here, the enlargement is obstructing the throat, and surgical removal or treatment of the underlying cause is needed to maintain a clear airway.
