Doctor can check: It's not easy to see and describe one's own tonsils. Throat and tonsil symptoms can be from flu or cold viruses, strep throat, EBV virus, etc... Doctors have 5-minute tests for strep throat (antibiotics are needed to treat strep). Doctors also have a quick test for Flu A and B. Mono is caused by the EBV virus and can cause big tonsils. One's primary care doctor can examine the throat.

Lymphnode on armpit randomly started hurting and causing bruising. With body aches and swollen tonsils. Worried I could have hiv.?
Doubt HIV but see MD: HIV rarely causes enlargement or inflammation of a single lymph node. Your other symptoms go along with several viral infections, such as infectious mono and others. Acute HIV can do things like this, but is rare compared with other possibilities, especially if not at obvious high risk (IV drug use, sex with gay/bi men, etc). Easy bruising could be serious. See MD ASAP, but probably not HIV.

White balls: Hello, the white balls in the back of your throat sound like tonsilliths. These are food particles that get stuck in the tonsil tissues. They harden and make your tonsils look like they are infected. Under these tonsil balls is a cavity or crevice that may be inflamed and infected causing your pain. Gargle with water after every meal. This helps to clear these white balls. Also see your doctor.

Look in the mirror and try to see the tonsil and condition of the tissues. If you yellow stuff or particles consider seeing a doctor if it persists

Possible: It could be simply dry and irritated due to mouth breathing/apnea at night but if so should quickly resolve in the am. If it persists all day you may have a viral infection. With no tonsils it is less likely to be strep. Take motrin and use salt water gargles and see your doctor if it persists or worsens.
