Hi! The small smelly white plugs coming occasionally from the throat are most probably Keratosis Pharyngis. They are harmless, and nothing needs to be done.

Hi, welcome to health care magic forum,

Thanks for the query,

These whitish balls are most probably crusts, secondary to atrophnic rhinitis changes, just take tab ambroxol 75 mg once a day for 5 days. and i am sure you will be all rite.

Hope this will help you.

for the last few days, I have been feeling as if i have a lump in my throat or a small golf ball stuck in my throat. Its not affecting my breathing, i feel no acid, no burning, no stomach problems. It comes and goes throughout the day - with no specific times being worse or better. Eating and drinking is not an issue. Its a feeling of having a lump in my throat - all the time - not just when i swallow. I smoke a fair bit - worried it could be cancer related even though i am only 24 yrs. Please advise what this could be.

For the past 3 days I had these small balls coming out of my throat causing a foul odor. When I touched my tonsils with my finger and sniffed it, it had a foul scent. I do not have any visible lumps on my tonsils. What could it be and how do I get rid of it ?
