Many people believe that they have stuck something in their throat once they notice small white nuggets in their tonsils. In fact, these white nuggets are called tonsil stones and not many people know that they have it.
The main causes for tonsil stones are mucus, bacteria, dead skin cells, or leftover food. Often they have yellow or white color and they have soft texture. These tonsil stones can trigger halitosis, inflammation of the throat, problems with swallowing foods, and breathing problems.
In case you suffer from chronic inflammation of the tonsils or in case you have large tonsils you actually have increased risk for developing tonsil stones. Some of the conventional treatments for tonsil stones are tonsillectomy which represents surgical removal of the tonsils.
You should be aware that even if you decide to do surgical removal of the tonsils doesn’t guarantee that tonsil stones will develop again. Once you remove the tonsils you are actually removing the immunity which protects your body from infections and bacteria.
