A large tonsil stone in the right tonsil. Tonsillitis and ear pressure are associated.
Tonsil stones are smelly organic lumps of food, epithelial cells and salivary debris. In what order or percentage we don’t really know. However they are associated with a bad metallic taste and sore throats. the treatment is some form of tonsillectomy, the most modern way being local anaesthetic laser tonsillectomy.
