"Lump on tonsil"

About: Greater Manchester Tameside General Hospital / Ear, Nose and Throat

(as a staff member),

This story has been posted by Healthwatch Tameside on behalf of a member of the public who asked not to have their name published. They said…

This lady was very anxious about a lump on her tonsil. Quick referral by GP at Donnybrook Surgery in Hyde to the ENT department at Tameside Hospital. Simple painless removal in clinic. Biopsy results two weeks later. Found to be non-malignant so very relieved! She feels she was dealt with quickly and with caring and competent staff at the hospital.
