Has anyone ever had a small(tiny) roundish stuff ( like a crumb size)come out from inside your throat I mean it is kind of mushy when you take it from your mouth and the smell of it smells like an old tooth when you dig deep in it (like bad plaque).
Like the smell at the dentist office after the dentist has worked on some teeth. YUK!
I know TMI but this happens once in awhile, what the heck is it???

Like graybugsmom said, they're like throat boogers. It's totally gross, but I'm pretty sure it's normal.

it may be tonsillitis. if the lumps are yellow-greenish or are foul smelling, they may be infected. if it's an ongoing issue, or it becomes uncomfortable - like you got stuff caught in your throat a lot of the time, you need to see an Ear Nose Throat specialist. I had this, and after 2 separate courses of antibiotics, they ended up having to remove my tonsils. I was 27 at the time. My ENT lasers them out these days. He told me I had the most infected tonsils he'd ever seen lol. I felt so spershull lmao. so bottom line, if it's just every once in a blue moon - no biggie, if it's chronic or bothersome - go see a doc.
