Do Tonsils Bounce?

Do tonsils bounce like a rubber ball for thirty minutes after being removed? Sadly they do not, and this is just another urban myth that has been concocted for entertainment purposes. So, let’s dig a little deeper into this dubious fact shall we?

There is a “fact” circulating that tonsils will bounce higher than a rubber ball for up to 30 minutes after they are removed. As we have just revealed, this is false and an urban legend. Tonsils do not bounce at all. In fact, they bounce no more than a standard piece of meat that you can buy from a butcher shop. How do we know? Simply put, we asked an ear, nose and throat surgeon. Yep, it was that simple and the answer itself was just as simple.
