See ENT: Tonsil stone is very common condition. Many small tonsil stones do not cause any noticeable symptoms. The larger stones can have a major symptoms like a bad breath, sore throat and earache. No symptoms no special treatment is required. If concerned see ENT for evaluation and treatment if needed. Hope it helps.

Tonsil stone: It's passed the nuisance threshold. Next time it's growing, make an appointment with an RNT or an Oral Surgeon. There are treatments that can permanently eliminate your problem.
