    Tonsil stone or something else?

    I have a history of tonsil stones particularly on my left tonsil. It has always been larger than the right for some reason.

    Maybe about a year ago I had a really, hard dark tonsil stone come out of the tonsil. It was almost black in color with rough edges. My normal tonsil stones are squishy and kind of a off-white or yellow color.

    Fast forward to a few days ago and I noticed a rough spot on my tonsil from touching my tongue. I looked at the tonsil with a mirror and saw a dark spot on the tonsil. I ran my finger over it and it was hard as a rock. I am not able to dislodge it. Upon further investigation I'd say the color is more like a dark green.

    Went to the primary care doctor a day ago and he says it's a type of canker sore with "necrotic" tissue in the middle. he said if it doesn't heal in a week he will refer me to an ENT.

    I don't think it's a healing canker sore because it wasn't painful. I'm hoping that it's just a deeply lodged stone.

    Anyone have a stone like this (hard, dark green) that they were not able to dislodge?
