Yellow, hard, smelly round discharge from back of throat?!?
Occasionally I have these yellow hard roundish things that come up from the back of my throat. When I squish them and smell it, it stinks really bad. What is this stuff and how can I treat it. Also does it affect the smell of my breath?

Do you smoke, if you do this is coming from you lungs, if you dont smoke it is still coming from your lungs, but is in infection, you might be getting the flu since it is yellow, that is a sign of infection, you should consult your doctor

This is not a dental question, per se.

The back of your throat gets discharge from four sources: the mouth, the nose, the lungs, and the stomach. What you have to do is to eliminate each one as a source of your discharge. A dentist is only licensed to look at the mouth.

Your best bet is to consult with an ENT: an ear, nose and throat specialist. Be prepared for the following questions, and more:

1) are you allergic to anything?
2) have you had a recent cold or sinus infection?
3) have you had a cough or chest congestion?

If the ENT can't find anything, THEN go to the dentist.

quit smoking

Sounds like u need 2c the doctor!

ah yeah. i used to have that before. and sometimes it goes back. last time i saw it was a week ago. it really smells bad right? what i did is to gargle with a warm salt water every night. but i dont think it works.. maybe that yellowish thing coming from the throat is a formation of phlegm or something.

i think it does affect the breath.

Hollow ✌
omg i used to have that!!!!
i dunno wdf it is but yeah i've been there.........i know it's gross but yeah ask ya doc.

They are called tonsilloliths, or tonsil stones. They are nasty smelling calcified gobs of mucous (from post nasal drip, esp if you've had a sinus infection), food particles and bacteria that collect in the pockets of your tonsils and start to rot there until you cough them up. Yes, it would make your breath pretty bad especially if you happen to break them open in your mouth. Yuck! You could try gargling with a warm-hot salt water rinse to dislodge them and clean the area. Then do the same with an antiseptic mouthwash. Good luck. =)

They are actually tonsil formations and are called tonsilloliths. As far as I can remember, there are some holes or depressions on the tonsil surface that may collect food, mouth debris and bacteria. When all of these things are present and mix in one whole, tonsillolith is what you get. The smell probably comes from bacteria.

I used to get those quite a few times when I was younger, but I don't get them anymore. I've read that it occurs a lot in adolescent age. So hopefully, it will clear up soon for you. Good luck!
