Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Tonsils. Mouth of an 11 year old girl showing her large but healthy tonsils (red lumps at centre left and right). The tonsils are masses of lymphoid tissue. The lymphatic system helps defend the body against diseases. The tonsils protect against upper respiratory tract infections. Between the tonsils is the uvula, a flap of flesh that hangs down at the back of the mouth.
