Why scared?: What you described does not seem to be a serious issue. If your tonsil increases in size by about 30%, starts bleeding or develops an ulcer, then see your doctor, otherwise you may watch and wait. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

They are usually harmless but can cause bad breath or repeated infections. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

If the bump seems to be enlarging or changing or anything I would get in to see your local ENT. The vast majority of the time a small red lesion on a tonsil in a 23 yo should be benign. ...Read more

Tonsillolith: This sounds like it could be a "Tonsillolith" or a "tonsil stone". These are a common and completely benign. You can often see the white top of the "stone" but the base fills a tonsil crypt and can be difficult to remove.
