SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) hey guys, i'm a 4th year med student and i'm not sure if you guys or the ENT forum would be able to answer this question. i am seeing an ENT doc next week but wanted to see what your thoughts were on this. i've also posted this on the ENT forum. this is pretty gross, but here it goes: i'm 28 and about 6 months ago, randomly produced this white, spongy, extremely foul-smelling, tooth-sized "glob" from my throat. at first, i thought it was old food that somehow got stuck and forgot about it. then it happened again a few weeks later and now its been happening every few weeks. i now get this funny sensation in the back of my throat (the best description i can give is like popcorn kernel stuck to the back of my throat) and i cannot see it, just feel it. i try to cough or bring it up with the back of my tongue (like you're about to vomit or bring up phlegm), but it usually stays there. then a few days later, it comes up on its own. its disturbing and to say the least, not very attractive to my boyfriend when i told him about it. at first, i was convinced it was zenker's diverticulum - but i've researched it a bit and i've come across the term "tonsillolith" or tonsil stones. my symptoms seem to pretty much match this rather than zenker's. have you guys heard about it or had a pt with it? PS. i do NOT have dysphagia, coughing, tonsillitis (although i get colds often and had horrible tonsillitis as a child). i don't regurgitate food i just ate. so there...and yes, i am seeing an ENT next week...so we'll see what happens. any thoughts? comments?
