*Urgent* white patches on tonsils
I have white patches on tonsils for 3 months now. So on the picture, the left one is the full fledged white patches and when i try to rub it off as seen on the right picture with some cotton, takes some effort, it goes off like a little part. Again the next day it comes back full fledged. Going on since 3 months. No Tobacco, drinking, smoking history. Recently was Herpes Simplex Virus Igm positive. It stings when i eat oily masala food. Had antibiotics too, still there and is always there. It's not Cancer, is it?

This is called Membranous Tonsillitis. If this is troubling you frequently, consider Tonsillectomy. No, it's not Cancer. Kindly don't Google your symptoms.
