Throat Tenderness Symptoms
I hav these white tonsil stone things in my throat and I have no idea what they are. My throat is a bit tender with some discomfort. Only symptoms.

Do you need to have other symptoms for a sore throat to be a concern or something serious? Mine been sore for months but no other symptoms.
