Hole in Right Tonsil. Could it be cancer??? [PICTURES INCLUDED]

Hi everyone,

Attached some pictures. I'm unsure which forum I should post this on.

Can anyone shed some light on this condition I have? Any similar cases.

As you can see, there is no hole in the left side, only a line resembling a crypt (which I assume is normal). But there's a hole on the right side.

Please tell me if anyone has similar experiences.

Can't wait for replies. I'm panicking.

Thanks.

Look like a crater. Lots of people have them in their tonsils. They can also form tonsil stones from food and bacteria being trapped in them.

tonsils have craters. its normal as long as there is no pain. craters are there to capture bacteria and sometimes white chunks form inside them which release and can cause your mouth to have a horrible odor and taste. if you prod the white spots they can sometimes be forced out. they are called tonsil stones.

I get this clicking noises sometimes when I say stuff to myself or recite my prayers. It seems to comes from the same spot where the crater is..

any cause for worry?

The clicking noise is probably just saliva being pushed into the crater. That's good there are no white things, but be aware that white things could form called tonsil stones. Nothing to worry about at all.

Totally normal.
I have them on my left side to and yeah it sucks when you can see the tonsil stone, sometimes I can even feel it in there but no harm. Usually gargling with mouthwash dislodges them.
