Our expert says:
The stuff you cough up could be coming from tonsil crypts if you still have your tonsils ( this is called tonsilliths). If possible one can try and squeeze them out ( I can't - I gag!) otherwise try to rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash. If this doesn't help you may need to consider removing the tonsils.
If you don't have your tonsils anymore, I think one should do further tests as this may then be coming from the lungs - at least a chest x/ray is then advised
