What causes lumps on the tonsils?

For a long time now, every month or so i get white lums on my tonsils, but within a few minutes of noticing them, the lumps fall off and i have to spit them out. My tonsils have always been large and extrememly pitted, but i dont know why the lumps always fall off. 17, 50kg, 5ft4.

It may be due to tonsillitis.

You may require antibiotics after physician consultation.

Do saline or Betadine gargles twice a day.

Take hygienic food and water.

Hope I have answered your query and let me know if I can assist you further.
