Best Answer

The number of tonsils in the human body depends on what location you are asking about, but in the mouth and throat there are 4 sets; the pharyngeal tonsils, tubal tonsils, palatine tonsils, and lingual tonsils.

If you are talking about other structures that are named tonsils, there are many others such as the cerebellar tonsils.

Humans grow two sets of teeth. This includes the primary set of teeth, which develop at six months of age, and the permanent teeth, which come in after the primary teeth fall out.

Does circumcision cause tonsils?

No. circumcision is the removal of foreskin from the penis, which is in a completely different part of the body than the tonsils, which are located in the throat. Every human being has tonsils, which is a natural part of the human body so it is TONSILITIS that I believe is being referred to here, which is an inflammation of the tonsils and no, removing the foreskin of the penis does not cause tonsil issues of any kind.
