Somethings wrong with my right tonsul.
    #4548302 - 08/17/05 09:26 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Its huge first off, bigger than the left. And everynow and then it deposits this solid white chunk of who knows. All I know is that its the worst smelling thing in the world and they can get as big as small marshmallows. I have to reach into my through to push it out and its been goin on forever.

See a doctor ASAP. You definitely have an infection of some kind, and if you let it go too long you may need to have your tonsils removed.

Sounds like chronic cryptic tonsillitis. Plaque/bacteria is building up on your tonsils and can cause all sorts of problems - including inflammation; namely the swelling of glands. Increase your oral hygiene. Start brushing your teeth more frequently and gargle with warm salt water or lysterine.  :thumbup:

If I was having marshmellow-sized chunks of solid white shit coming out of my tonsils, I think I'd go to a doctor.

The white things are known as "tonsil stones"- they form when food becomes lodged in your tonsils. They smell bad because of the bacteria acting upon them. I have had them myself several times over the years. I have not heard of them getting as big as you describe so you might want to see a doctor if it goes on much longer. But generally it will clear up on its own.

FINALLY! An answer! I get strep at least once a year, and I get those "tonsil stones" all the time. So nasty. I need to get them pulled. No insurance though....

Even if removed they would come back eventually. They form in the pockets around the tonsils- some people just have a bigger area there to trap the occasional food particle. If its any consolation to you, they seem to occur less frequently as you get older.

Yeah, tonsil stones are basically like tonsil smegma. Thing is, they often stop showing up when you reach your 20s.

If your tonsil stones get really bad, and don't go away, you can have surgery to reduce the gaps where food and bacteria get caught.

Can "tonsil stones" really become that bad of a problem?

There's nearly a surgery for every little problem of the human body. What ever happened to allowing the body carry out its natural processes...?

tonsils are glands that act as the lymphatic systems "relief valve". in the past they would be removed, today most doctors understand the role they play. from what i've come to know when the lymphatic system becomes overloaded tonsils allow contaminated lymph fluid to "leak" into the back of the throat and down into the belly where digestive fluids break it down where it is then eliminated.

i would recommend getting the infection under control and then begin some type of detox program... your tonsils are leaking fluid for a reason... please keep us posted...

peace
