Welcome in H.C.M.
Regarding your queries for node on right side of neck at upper part along with white hard substance came out from posterior part of throat, reflect us that probably you are having chronic tonsillitis and the white hard substance came out on pressing it is organised pus. because of chronic tonsillitis drainage lymph nodes of upper part of neck are swollen.
Thus you are suffering from chronic tonsillitis with lymphadenitis.
