Tonsil Stones Diagram

Tonsil stones are also known as tonsilloliths. They are caused by debris and bacteria building up and getting stuck in the tonsils. The debris including mucus from post nasal drop turns putrid in the back of the throat and collects in the small pockets on the surface of the tonsils.

Tonsil stones look like little white or yellow balls. They can be so small that they are unnoticeable or fairly large (up to a few centimetres wide).
