What Do Tonsil Stones Look Like
Years ago I had a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy but I'm coughing up what look like tonsil stones? Can't see them, what is it/how to get rid of them?
Tonsil stones : Sometimes when you have a tonsillectomy there is still a remnant remaining that could still cause tonsilloliths.

Hi. it looks like there is a deeper crater in the top of my left tonsil. they are inflamed with tonsil stones but my biggest concern is the asymmetry.
Tonsil problem: Tonsoliths (stones in your tonsils) are common among the young with swollen, irregular tonsil tissue. Asymmetry is not unusual, and perhaps due to the size of these stones.

These are not usually infectious, but if painful should be checked. ...Read more
