    Throat problems and life problems

    Hello all,

    I currently have a white spot on my throat. It's been there for several weeks at LEAST (from when I noticed it). No pain. I know it's not strep - I get that often enough to know it well. It's just there...doesn't change. I do kind of feel like my throat in the last week or two has gotten kind of red, but again, no pain, nothing. It's concerning me a lot. It's just one more thing I don't need. My parents are both dying right now (both have end stage cancers), my husband and I have to file bankruptcy and my daughter got into a wreck with my car this morning (she's fine). I'm so overwhelmed and the idea that this might be something too is just pushing that over the edge.

    Oh my, you are going through so much right now!! I'm so sorry. What you describe sounds kind of like a tonsil stone - just a collection of plague that gets caught in your tonsil. Harmless. They usually just eventually get knocked out on their own. Could also be a stubborn canker sore.

    I doubt the white spot is anything serious. Could be tonsil stone or canker sore like the above poster stated. Just wanted to tell you my heart goes out to you. I canít imagine what youíre going through! Prayers for you and your family. (((((HUGS)))))

    I thought about tonsil stones but I read that those smell very badly? I don't seem to have that issue and a canker sore would hurt wouldnt it? My main concern is that it's been there several weeks. And thanks both of you! It's been hard. I'm actually with my parents getting them both admitted to hospice care and it's so heartbreaking.
