Visitors to this website are here because they are finding little white/yellow lumps in their mouth or coughing up these little stones and don’t know what they are. They are called tonsil stones – hardened mucus, food particles and bacteria. All different shapes and white/yellow in colour. It’s not always easy to know if you have them as they don’t show any symptoms except foul breath.
If you have a sore throat and other aches or pains associated with your tonsils, please visit your doctor for further advice.
If you don’t know what tonsil stones look like then the photos below will show you. We also have some tonsil stones videos showing tonsil stones being removed in different ways. We are not recommending any of the methods below but simply showing how frustrated people are with having them and that they desperate to remove them.
In our experience, dentists and doctors don’t take this awful condition seriously and some of the time they don’t even acknowledge their existence. Those of us who have tonsil stones struggle with this annoying condition on a daily basis.
