Several reasons: The term tonsillolith is a misnomer. It is not a stone. The material on the surface of the tonsil could be a benign cyst, a micro-abscess or food particles. It there is no pain or odor, no treatment except, perhaps, gargles with salt water may be helpful. Yellow material could also be pus. Best to have an ENT doctor evaluate the problem. ...Read more

Can u feel tonsil stones? For the past two days ive been forcing myself to cough up/spit out these little yellow balls. The feeling drives me crazy!!

Tonsil stones: Yes you can feel them and yes they can be little yellow balls. They are NOT a disease; they are just dead white cells and dead bacteria that accumulate in your tonsil crypts. No reason to treat. My device Hydro Pulse Nasal/Sinus irrigator has a throat irrigator attachment designed to irrigate the stones away. You are not contagious and can work in the nursery. see www.grossaninstitute.com ...Read more

Gum disease: Bleeding gums can be a sign that you are at risk for, or already have, gum disease. These bacteria, along with mucus and other particles, constantly form a sticky, colorless toxic “plaque” on teeth causing the gums to become inflamed and to easily bleed. Bleeding may be a sign of a serious problem, which should be checked by a dentist. ...Read more

No ENT in my city Tonsil stone calcified not bothersome but tonsil/tissue seems to be growing over it. Also yellow on lingual tonsil.  Problematic?

Gettin'StonedAgain?: It may not be causing a problem now & it may never cause a problem and who knows, that tonsil may be able to bury it deep inside itself,which would be a mixed blessing.But, if with time it starts hurting or leaking or causing bad breath, you'll have to have it tended to at that time.So you might want to get it taken care of sooner than later.One visit to an ENT would probably do it.Worth the drive ...Read more
