Is it normal for small white chunks to sometimes come up my throat?

I haven't had this problem in a long time, but on occasion it will happen. small chunks come up my throat, when I feel them, I try to couch them up and out. they're white, squishy/ soft, and smell like feces. I have very good hygiene habits and healthy diet+ a multivitamin. is it cause for concern? it grosses me out.. I'm worried it may actually be feces coming up.

I actually went to the doctor for this once. He said its nothing bad. It's just like, your body fights off infection and it can sometimes be stored in your tonsils and all of the dead infection builds up there. So eventually your tonsils push them out and they become white bumps in the back of your throat. And when they fall off, theyre that nasty white stuff that comes up.

I find it hilarious that you have names for the bile you hack up.

Go to your doctor.Heard of this before, sounds like tonsilitus/throat infection.Gargle with antiseptic mouth wash too.

Tonsilloliths. I've heard of them and they must suck.

Do you still have your tonsils? If so, that's probably what it is. Before I got mine out, I had that happen to me ALL the time. It was awful. Now that my tonsils are gone, so are the white chunks. Definitely go see a doctor.

Search "tonsil stones" on Google, and see if it looks the same.

They are undigested food that came back up.

Tonsil stones, infection, mucus, etc. It's hard to know. I suggest saving some and taking them to a ENT. Good Luck!

I get the same kinda thing except it doesn't smell. Its usually when I'm not ill I'll just randomly wipe my mouth after a good cough and I'll see these little always the same sized balls of clear squishyness lol

Tonsil stones or tonsil rocks. Food gets caught in your tonsils. That is what they are. Food stuck that has been sitting in your throat too long. My doc says clean them out with a q-tip

if you have white spots on your tonsils, you won't be able to cough those up. those are actually infection that is in the membrane.

sounds like undigested dairy something. try skipping dairy products for awhile and see if it stops happening.

I've never seen them on the tonsils, but it was more like I would feel small chunks in my throat and sometimes be able to get 'em out to see wtf they were. other times I would try to wash them down with a drink. if they start coming back I'll talk to my doc about getting them removed. thank you to all the replies. :)
