Something fell out

today during class i yawned than suddenly something dropped out of the back of my throat and it felt like I had swolled a ball. My lympth notes swelled up almost immediately after and when I went to look in the mirror it appeared that part of my tonsil was missing. Now a year ago I did have a case tonsilitis and I think that may have something to do with it but I'm really not sure what is wrong. Any information would be STRONGLY appreciated. Thanks bunches.

You might have developed a tonsillith which is a piece of food particles that gets stuck in the tonsil.  After repeated infections over one's lifetime, the tonsil develops little grooves in which food can get stuck.  You might require a tonsillectomy to resolve the problem.
