Caption

Tonsillectomy scars. Scars on the throat of a 32 year old woman 16 days after an operation to remove her tonsils. Tonsils are masses of lymphoid tissue. They are part of the body's immune system and help to protect the throat and upper respiratory tract from infections. The tonsils are removed when a patient has recurrent tonsillitis, a bacterial or viral infection that causes a severe sore throat, often accompanied by fever.
