White chunks from throat, Could it be more ?

I read some of your other articles about white, lumpy chunks of material coming out of your throat (that are very smelly) - and someone had answered theirs was just food particles. Could it be more ?

They probably are Tonsilloliths which are calcareous concretions seen in the tonsillar crypts in some people. If it is accompanied by Halitosis or bad breath, you may seek examination and treatment. Other causes are extremely rare and only microscopic examination of these lumps can help differentiate the exact cause.
