Thanks for writing to us

I have gone through your query regarding stone in tonsils. I would like to tell you that stone in tonsil is called as tonsillolith. This is one of the complications of unmanaged chronic tonsillitis.

As for as treatment is concerned, tonsillectomy operation is the only treatment.
Let me know if you have any more questions

With Regards.
