If you’re not sure if you have tonsil stones or not, I’ve attached a video that shows very graphic tonsil stones pics. BEWARE THOUGH, this video is VERY graphic, if you have a tendency to be squeamish at all, don’t watch it. I’ll post more pictures later that will be a little less severe on the stomach to remove tonsil stones. . .
These tonsil stones pics really do show the worst case scenario. This girl must have had them for awhile. How Awful!
You can definitely see her tonsil stones at the back of her throat though. It’s a large lump of solid whitish material. But you won’t always be able to see them in yourself well enough to remove tonsil stones. They are sometimes hidden in cavities or folds in the tonsils. In this case, while you may have a sore throat, you may need a CT scan to identify that this is indeed the cause.
Here though, you can tell that she definitely has a hard time swallowing as she goes about trying to remove tonsil stones by coughing them out, and then her Mom takes a Que tip to them. She has so many of them that the diagnosis is clear. (Like I said, the tonsil stones pics in this live video are really gross!)
This person probably had extreme tonsil swelling, while her tonsil stones, (or tonsilloliths), were being formed as the trapped debris hardened and calcified. Many times, stones this large occur in those who are prone to chronic inflammation in their tonsils or have tonsillitis repeatedly. I suppose that after while you just get used to them and ignore their existence (if that’s even possible!)
The debris in these girls’ tonsils has probably been there a long time to form tonsil stones this large. Removing tonsil stones looked almost too easy for her because they are so big (but unfortunately, there were also a lot of them!). Anyway, she should definitely find out what she’s eating or doing that’s giving her so many tonsil stones at one time. If left untreated, the tonsils will become more inflamed and could get infected.
Now, I’m not saying all these things to make you worry more about removing tonsil stones. There IS a way to remove tonsil stones and prevent them from returning. It’s not all about just what your eating getting stuck in your tonsils either. However, it IS what you are eating that could be making matters worse and giving you more inflammation as you try to suffer through your current incident and remove tonsil stones in a futile attempt to get better.
OK, here’s the video, remember, I warned you so don’t get mad at me if you get sick watching this!
