i HAVE white oval shaped growth towards the back of my throat-not on my tonsils though. I have no sinus problems, no allergies, I do not smoke either. I have no cold and no swollen tonsils or lymph nodes either. I scraped them out the first time I noticed them, and I put them on a white napkin- they look white in my throat, but after gagging myself totally to scrape them out by sticking my fingers in there and using my nails to detach them- and feeling the scraping sensation all the while my fingers getting drenched with saliva- and I gave up using qtips because i would always touch my tongue and they would leave a fibrous cottony residue of the slightest which was super annoying. Anyway they were more of a creamy yellow color in reality, and also they were a solid texture, but not so hard that I could not slice though it.When they dried over night they shriveled up and became red little dots on the napkin. I now realize that they have come up my throat on their own before, because I remember spitting them out. Well, short of gargling like mad scrubbing my tongue, flossing, hacking up stomache fluid while sticking my fingers back there and repeating the process I just want to know what are these, why they smell so ghastly, and why when I took another one out today-they had not appeared in the past month or so- it left a hole in the side of my mouth. Are they eating the inside of my mouth? They obviously thrive in that habitat because they shrivel up and die when I left the balls on the napkin. Who has some real answers without suggesting that I get my tonsils extracted, or acid reflux, or tonsil stones? Anyone else have these holes left in their mouth afterwards, and anyone else leave them out overnite and see them shriveled up and red the next morning?
