Everyone suffers from occasional sore throat - but most people don't think too much about what causes this pain.

A few years ago a friend of mine was sick. He went to the doctor, and was told that all he was suffering from was a sore throat. But after a few days the symptoms didn't go away.

Together, we started searching for possible causes online, and there we discovered the concept of tonsillitis, or tonsil stones. Even after my friend recovered (he was lucky it wasn't serious), I still wondered what exactly it meant.

What are tonsil stones - and what should you do if you suffer from them?

We hope this article will help someone who suffers from tonsillitis but doesn't know what they are. Keep reading and don't forget to share this information with your friends!

What are tonsil stones?

At the back of the pharynx, between the palate arches, are the tonsils. They have small niches where phlegm sometimes gets stuck, mouth bacteria and dead white blood cells. Eventually, all of these can form small, hard stones - and these are known as tonsil stones.

The stones are white or yellowish and unpleasant in appearance. They are usually small - a few millimeters in size.

Symptoms

There are some signs for whether you suffer from tonsillitis. These are the 8 most common signs that everyone should know:

Tonsil stones treatment

When the stones are small and you have no further symptoms, no treatment is needed. Sometimes the stones even come out on their own.

But if the stones are large, anesthesia surgery may be needed to remove them. Tonsil stones can only be prevented by removing the tonsils completely - but this is not really recommended.

And don't forget: if you think you have tonsillitis, go to the doctor to see what can be done!
