    Question:   About once every two months, I can feel something on my tonsil with the back part of my tongue. It is very annoying. When I look, there is a white mass there. These masses reach up to 1/2 cm in diameter and they show up on in various places on both tonsils. I have to take a toothpick and remove this white mass. It doesn't hurt, it is just very annoying until I can get it out and I usually choke myself trying. This has been happening for years and as of yet, no doctor has been able to explain this to me. Have you heard of this?    Dr. McLaughlin's Answer
