What Do People Normally Get A Tonsil Cyst From
Not sure: "tonsil cyst" isn't a medical term, so it is hard to know exactly what you are talking about. Tonsil stones or "tonsilliths" are collections of food and infection which are whitish and are common. They cause bad breath, and sometimes reflect chronic tonsillitis.

A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more
I get tonsil stones. I've had a white pus cyst on my tonsils for over 6 mths and a specialist advised it is nothing & may go. Is it safe if I pop it?
Yes it is ok to pop it but beware of a "fun" taste and then do a warm salt rinse afterwards. You might have some slight bleeding so don't be alarmed. You can also have them sucked out with a small surgical suction tip.

I had surgery to remove a dental cyst now when I bend forward I get shooting pains through right side of my face, runny nose metal taste in my mouth?
Opening to sinus: If the cyst was in the vicinity of the sinus the removal may have created an opening from the mouth to the sinus. These often heal and close on their own. Antibiotics would be prescribed along with precautions regarding creating pressure between the mouth and sinus such as drinking through a straw. If it doesn't close on its own surgery would be required. Follow-up with your dentist. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not to worry: The tonsils in the throat are lined with squamous epithelium (skin). Sometimes the normal growth of this lining can invaginate and grow inwards causing a benign cyst. If there is no redness around the cyst and if does not cause pain or enlarge, I would not worry about it. The question is, is this really a cyst? See an ENT doctor for reassurance. Read more
Yes: It is possible to have cysts in tonsils for years and years without causing any symptoms/problems. Read more
No: Although this is most likely a benign cyst, it is not small. 9mm is almost 1/3 of an inch. If it is not tender with redness around it, and it has been there for months, I would not worry about it. A 2-3 mm. Cyst is what I would call small. Watch it over the course of 6 months and if it remains the same size, I would not worry, but have an ENT doctor check it to give you some peace of mind. Read more
Tonsil: A tonsil cyst and a tonsil stone are very different problems, but they can both present with pressure, pain and discomfort. As for taste...Not really. A tonsil stone smells quite putrid and the taste typically follows. There usually isn't much to take with a tonsil cyst. Read more
I've had a tonsil Cyst for 3-4 years. Hasn't caused any problems. Is it dangerous or can it be cancerous?
Had tonsils removed along with a cyst in my left sinus 5 days ago. What should I expect over the next few weeks?
Post surgery: Tonsillectomy in adults results in a significant sore throat after surgery with possible low grade fever, ear pain, and bad breath. Be sure to keep drinking a lot of fluids and do not get dehydrated. The removal of the sinus cyst may cause some nasal congestion and a little blood drainage from the nostril for a week or so. Contact your doctor if you have any significant bleeding or fever. Read more
