Hello All,

I am 32 year old (male).

I had white deposits on my right tonsil for almost a month. Also when I used to cough in the morning pale white bad smelling substance used to fall (same like tonsil stones). I carried a 15-20 days course of antibiotics but the white deposit on the tonsils continued to grow. As a backup plan I had to resort to Ayurvedic (Ayurveda) treatment. This treatment made the white deposit loosen and fall off. I sent it for a Histology testing and it revealed "Necrotising Tonsillitis with Superadded Candida". Now the white deposit due to candida has disappeared. Now I am noticing a slit in right tonsil. This slit contains pale white bad smelling substance. I visited an ENT specialist for this and he suggested me tonsillectomy. According to him my tonsils have torn and hence food particles are getting stuck in it causing that pale white matter. Also the bacteria is attacking these food particles to give a foul smell.

I did read some of the posts already posted on this subject here and came to know that such holes are created by the puss (result of earlier infections) getting out of the tonsils. Also such holes are sealed on their own over time.

Now I am in a dilemma. Should I go for tonsillectomy or wait for the hole in the tonsil to seal on its own? At this point the only problem I am suffering from is the pale white foul smelling deposits in my tonsils. I have no pain whatsoever as of now.

I am fearing tonsillectomy as I heard it reduces immunity. Not sure if this is correct. And in general I am trying to avoid surgery if it is not a must.

Can someone suggest me the right path to go about?

Thanks much in advance.
