    Bleeding Tonsils

    I'm concerned because for about the last year or two, when I sleep at night I can taste and feel blood/phlem in my throat and when I get up in the night or in the morning I spit out blood. The Doctor tells me I have "Bleeding Tonsils". I have no fever, no sore throat or anything to indicate that I am sick. I just don't know why this is happening and would like to know how to cure it. I'm 56 years old so I don't think having a tonsillectomy at my age is something I really want to do, but if that is the only answer then I guess I need to be discussing this option. Has anyone else in my age bracket on this website experienced this condition and if so, what have you learned or tried? I'm worried that prolonged swallowing of the blood can cause something else.
