Are you familiar with tonsils stones? Perhaps you are?
If you have tonsils, there is a chance to have tonsils stones! Many people are not even aware they have them in their mouth, or didn’t notice when they came out, but if they are large enough, you can feel when the stones come out!
Tonsils stones usually occur as a result of frequent tonsils inflammation, or if you simply have too large tonsils with many craters.
No one knows exactly how many people are prone to this phenomenon, but in one study, with 150 respondents who underwent MRI of the head, about 24% of them had tonsil stones.
Doctors and scientists are still discussing over how exactly the tonsils stones occur, but one thing is certain – the dead cells, mucus from the mouth and pieces of food stuck in the tonsils crevices, where are hardening into a homogeneous mixture. Many people, as mentioned, do not feel they have the tonsils stones.
