    Dear sindy,

    It looks like your right tonsil is slightly swollen. I also wonder if you have tonsillar stones (tonsilloliths) that could be causing your symptoms.

    There's a better description and more information from Wikipedia if you search for 'tonsil_stones'.

    You've submitted this under 'Sexual Health', so are you worried that it could be caused by an STI? If so, I suggest you get checked in a GU/sexual health clinic and request a throat swab for gonorrhoea & chlamydia.

    Rgds,

    Adhari.
