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

Tonsilloliths: White bumps on the tonsil are caused by collection of food particles and debris in the grooves of the surface of the tonsil called tonsillar crypts. The crypts get blocked and form these tiny bumps - similar to a blocked sweat gland or boil. These ultimately either stay as such or may burst and resolve. They are usually harmless but can cause bad breath or repeated infections. ...Read more

I'm 23 years old. I have a tiny red bead like lump/bump on my right tonsil. I just noticed it today. Should I be worried?

Should be ok: You're probably looking at a portion of a blood vessel on the surface of the tonsil. These aren't uncommon. 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. You can try irrigating with a waterpik, or gently pushing on the base of the stone with a finger and trying to push it out. ...Read more
