    A week or two ago I noticed a slit-like hole at the side/back of my mouth near the uvula towards the right. Inside it laid a small white thing.

    I assumed it was a white rice that got stuck in a cut. Now, I just ate some white rice again and checked to see it is like 3 or 4 times bigger.

    I am 17, healthy, no drugs or alcohol and feel no pain so far.




    Is it an infection or food stuck in a cut? Please, I am worried.


    It looks a lot like this but I think mine is more severe:

    It looks like my throat when I have tonsillitis but not sure if that's the problem as symptoms would have shown up

    What symptoms?

    Is tonsillitis serious?

    It sounds like it could be a tonsil stone, but I'd check with a doctor just to be on the safe side
