What is the cause and treatment for tonsil stones?

Hey doc I just have a question last night I awoke in the middle of the night and coughed up a yellow ball that felt similar to toothpaste and it smelled terrible it kind of smelt like feces. So I was wondering what that is and what can I do to stop it.Thanks :)

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
If this is the tonsil stone then this is to be removed and for that you have to see the ENT surgeon, for the yellow thing that you have noticed, this could be purulent sputum, looking to over all history given here you must need to go get the clinical examination you might be in need of antibiotic treatment, take care and have nice day.
