Have petachiae on leg. Dot on inner cheek, swollen tonsil, white pieces on tonsil. History of tonsillitis

I am a 20 year old female, for around a year and a half to two years I have noticed the occasional patch of petachiae on my upper leg, it seems to happen when I scratch my leg quite vigorously however yesterday I noticed a dot on my inner cheek and know that it can be a sign of leukemia , I also have had one tonsil larger than than the other which when I push on. With a q tip, the question tip smells and or white little pieces come out, I do not have this problem with the other tonsil... And am aware that asymmetrical tonsil are also sign of lymphoma .... My health history is quite short, as a child I suffered with tonsillitis frequently but that is it

hello dear
first i will answer your tonsil problem , yes you are right enlargment of one tonsil may be sign of lymphoma but you said that when you push your tonsil white little pieces comes out and thats never happed in lymphoma!....your tonsil problem we call it tonsoliths and its simple and you dont have to worry about.
and about your inner cheek's dot its usually cased by trauma from your teeth or more commonly caused by aphthus ulcer......again in leukemia usually the ulcers are multiple and accompanied by enlarged bleeding gums with lymphnods enlagement
and finally your leg problem i think it is due to scratching, and if you are still worried about that you can do complete blood picture for reassurance.....hope you all the healthiness
