See Your Doctor: Your description is consistent with a Tonsillolith, a concretion of organic debris that builds up in the crevices of the tonsil. It is usually foul-smelling, white to yellowish, is embedded in the tonsil, and can be extruded with manipulation. They are fairly common and can cause halitosis, inflammation of tonsil, and in some cases can cause abscess. See your doctor for evaluation and management.
