Throat Culture: You should see doctor to have throat culture for beta strep infection and if positive to be treated with antibiotic.

Maybe nothing or ...: Large tonsils, in & of themselves, aren't necessarily abnormal. Nor are white spots on back of throat (might be food!). If you're feeling sick eg sore throat, fever, swollen glands, etc, that's something different (retropharyngeal abscess?). Bottom line, you need to go see your family doc for evaluation & testing.
