Hey,
It would be much better if you would search on web for tonsil cyst pictures, that could help you understand what is tonsil cyst like. But in written description, it is a mass of pharyngeal lymphoid tissue with an external lining of stratified squamous mucosa, lying between the arches of the palatoglossal and palatopharyngeal muscles and just superficial to the superior constrictor muscle : ) Understand? Deep in the tonsil there are crypts lined by squamous epithelium containing debris composed of desquamated epithelium, bacteria and fungal organisms. The lymphoid tissue surrounding the crypts has nodules, often with germinal centers. Deep in the crypts the epithelial layer becomes blurred since the lymphocytes of the tonsil invade it. Tara…

Hi,
Tonsil cyst usually looks like small white lesion or a spot on your tonsils. They are usually full of pus or fluid. Now the good thing here is that they are usually not harmful and they do not have significant impact on your health. However you have to know that in some rare cases they might even indicate cancer. You can’t mix tonsil cyst and tonsil stones because they are two different things. Tonsil stones are calcified matter that is hard on touch and tonsils cyst are usually soft and not solid as stones. You might be asked from your doctor to perform a biopsy on your cyst just to determine if it is not cancerous.
Hope this was enough.
