If you found the whiteish-yellowish lump on your throat, that might be a tonsil stone. But where does the lump come from? Why do you have it?

I ended up with tonsil stones and then within 2 months I had a tonsillectomy. Worst pain ever! Its right up there with labor. I couldnt eat or drink for 2 weeks due to my doctors not giving me pain medicine that worked. Unfortunately now I get laringitis and cant sing anymore 😖
Alright, this comment is hopefully to help people that are getting annoyed with their tonsil stones. First off, let me start out by saying I've been dealing with tonsil stones for many years, since I was a child. I know how annoying they can be, having that feeling of something in the back of your throat. And sometimes you just cant get them out. Luckily I have a rather simple, yet effective solution. The thing about this video I don't agree with is that he says removing your tonsils is for severe or extreme cases. Trust me when I say this, get your tonsils removed. It is so worth it. Just make sure you tell your doctor how annoying it is to have, and ask for an ENT to see if you can get those taken out. Once they are out, Im not going to lie, it is going to be a very VERY hard 10 day recovery if you are an adult. The healing process is pretty painful, but please dont let that scare you off. After those 10 days, you will never have to deal with tonsil stones again. I did it, and I'm a wuss when it comes to pain. I know you can do it too. If you need any advice or have any questions regarding tonsil stones please ask.
THANK YOU for posting this. I have suffered from them for literally years. I had always attributed them to my smoking. I always thought that they would go away when I quit smoking and their frequency of occurrence has slowed but they never went away. I didn't know how to really describe them or what to call them so I couldn't describe them properly to my doctor. Thanks to this video I know what to call them and last week I scheduled an appointment with my doctor, next month I will have a tonsillectomy and possibly an adnoidectomy because of how bad the inflammation in that area is. The testing also revealed some other things that the ENT wants to look into that may be able to be corrected that I didn't know were abnormal so THANK YOU again for posting this.
I get those all the time. It's obnoxious. I usually take my finger and squeeze them out. Sometimes there's a lot more in there than what you can visually see in the mirror. They always feel like a popcorn cernal lodged in your throat.
Bro I had tonsil stones so bad that they had to remove my tonsils. I had like three every week that would irritate my throat so much and I had to choke myself to get them out. Not a good time.
And thEN a week after the tonsillectomy there was a complication and my throat started bleed so that was nice too. Emergency surgery is fun.
The recovery was too long and very painful. Brush your teeth kids
Weird I know, but I like when I get one, bc Im obsessed with squishing n smelling it over n over for like 10 mins!😆😂 I get like one every other year, so I be waiting for it like a nerd to analyze n inspect it!🙈👀
I had them since I was little, finally had my tonsils removed when I was about 30. I also have a condition where my mouth opening has shrunk and I couldn't get them out anymore. Tonsillectomies are extremely painful, but in this case it was worth it!
Is it safe to remove them by touching your tonsils?
I usually stick my fingers in my throat and apply pressure to my tonsil and push down or up and it'll remove those chunks by forcing them out. Or should I cease doing such?
I used to get them frequently (almost every other day) and i normally would cough them out. I rarely get them ever sense i stopped my intake of dairy for other health reasons :) Any time i do have slight dairy, e.e next day... There It Is.

I always have rice stuck to it. So what I do is I literally scrape it off with forcefully gargling (with aspirin) which releives the swelling and acts as a pain killer as well, and mildly removing them off with the sides of my pee finger.
I ended up having to get my tonsils removed due to my tonsil stones at the age of 22. Always had problems with my tonsils and ulcers, but once I reached my twenties, the stones became recurring. Went to an ENT and explained my situation of having a few tonsil stones about once a week. He looked in my throat for 5 seconds and was like “yeah those need to come out”. Get them removed 2 weeks later and he told me one pocket was just filled to the brim with them and causing irritation and swelling. Since then I haven’t had any problems with my throat in regards to soreness.
If you is interested in cures for tonsil stones the best results that I have ever had was by following the Simons Stone Stopper (i found it on google) without a doubt the most useful remedy that I have ever tried.
There are many components to tonsil stones treatment. One plan I discovered that successfully combines these is the Simons Stone Stopper (check it out on google) definately the best resource that I've seen.Check out all the unbelievable information .
It's food that gets stuck in the little wholes in your tonsils they stay there for years and keep building up over time everyone you swallow food and eat anything food gets in there and then it can get infected that's when they get swolen and they turn really big I got most of the "stones" out but food keeps getting in there but since the food isn't 2 years old it doesn't smell anymore but I have really big wholes now and food keeps getting in there I clean them out like once a week
Used to cough these up a lot when I smoked, I probably still have them to some degree but just don't cough them up anymore... they do smell terrible if you smush them between your fingers and smell it after. It reminds me of what old people's houses smell like right before or after they die.

I’ve had to pop out so many fricking tonsil stones. But they always ever do quickly form new ones. I’ve had them for maybe 2 years now and it makes it so I never really get fully recovered from a cold. It always feels like I’m about to get a cold and I mean. I can have a fever for 2 weeks and glue like symptoms, then be good ish and then a week later have the same thing happen again. They really suck. I think I’m gonna go to a doctor but I’ve been there before and they just checked my throat for the flue but I didn’t have it so I’m pretty sure it’s cuz of the tonsils little ego that I’m sick all of the time
I have been experiencing this problem for a long period of time and I was very satisfied when I knew there was a cure to it. I used this tonsil stones treatment “kuzu amazing guide” (Google it) exactly and my tonsil stones were completely eliminated in Three weeks. My breath was noticably better in a day. I could not believe it. Something so easy, worked so well.
Exactly like you, I visited the doctors but my tonsil stones always came back. I like to recommend this “kuzu amazing guide” tonsil treatment method that you could look up on Google. Once I understood exactly what was causing my tonsil stones, it was so easy to remove them completely. Really, everyone can treat their tonsil stones with this method.
So this thing, everyone has it on their throat? If it is removed = cure bad breath permanently? So how long does it take this thing to form back and cause the bad breath again? How often do you need to clean? Is it safe to removed them all completely?
Nicely presented and informative video. At least you didn't imply as other videos did that the only reason for tonsil stones is poor oral hygiene, which is SO not true. If you have allergies, they are common because of the extra mucus and post-nasal drip associated - I hate them SO much.
I noticed a lil whitish dot in the back of my mouth and i realised that the tonsil stones are right next to it that i couldnt see. So i stuck my finger in my mouth and pushed it out, like three, but i threw up a few times trying to shove my finger in my mouth
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
