I noticed whitish/yellowish spots in my tonsils that weren't hard but more squishy. My doctor said they were tonsilliths but the ones I see online are hard and pop out like rocks. Mine seems to ooze a little. I have a relatively big protrusion above/behind my tonsil. When I mess with it, I can see some yellow stuff inside it. So I tried getting it out. It doesn't hurt to poke or squeeze so I know it's not actually a part of me. I think I got a little too rough and I used cuticle trimmers very GENTLY to try and tug it out but it just cut off little pieces. Again, it didn't hurt. But it is a little sore now. What the heck is wrong with me??
