Patient : I have tonsil stones (crypt debris) and have had for ten years. I often use a cotton bud to scratch them off when they get too big as they scratch my throat. I did this yesterday but think I pressed a bit too hard. As I did so part of my tonsil bulged out (almost like a herniation) and began oozing white fluid. When I swallowed the fluid disappeared but the new buldge in my tonsil is still there. I'm concerned. There is no pain but should my tonsil have done this? I have extremely important exams in five days and don't want to leave this if it could lead to a nasty infection.
