A Case Of Worried Well
Jan 21, 2002

Oh, man... for years, I have been so worried because I had experienced the smallest, most insignificant exposure possible (Literally!), and I tortured myself for my... 'non'-vigilance? In any case, a year ago, I even started 'growing' white stone-like critters on the back on my throat, near my tonsils... naturally, I freaked out... I would squeeze them out, but there would just be more under it! But it has recently been brought to my attention that the problem is nothing more than tonsilloliths, which as I understand is a relatively benign deposit of bacteria... so, just a warning to the worried well: Perhaps this should serve to reiterate the fact that there could be a logical explanation for any problems that you may see in your mouth!

Response from Dr. Reznik

I could not have worded this better!


Should I Be Tested?
