What are tonsil stones?
Tonsil stones, or tonsilloliths, are hard white or yellow formations that are located on or within the tonsils.
It’s common for people with tonsil stones to not even realize they have them. Tonsil stones aren’t always easy to see and they can range from rice-sized to the size of a large grape. Tonsil stones rarely cause larger health complications. However, sometimes they can grow into larger formations that can cause your tonsils to swell, and they often have an unpleasant odor.
