food partciles in throat cavity
i am suffering from problem i.e  food particles get stuck somewhere in cavity behind tonsils in the throat. i have consulted many ENT specialists, however all suggest that it is not a disease and hence no cure through pill. they further opined that operations/ surgery for removal of tonsils is not recommended for such small problem. however i feel very uncomfortable and alway doubt of foul odour from my breath. please suggest any sure one time permenant remedy for curing the said problem.

What you're referring to sounds like tonsil stones. I've never heard of a "one time permanent remedy" for curing these...however, here's some information regarding them:

Best of luck!

Hi there, I've experienced this for 3 years now and they come and go many times through the year. I get them quite a lot, they are nicknamed tonsil stones and I find I get them more when Im stressed.
They are harmless but quite annoying and can leave a horrible taste in the back of your throat. They can be quite difficult to remove yourself if you have a sensitive gag reflex, but if youre like me then you'l have no trouble.
They are easy to remove with cotton wool buds, just shine a torch down your throat and apply pressure where you can see them and they just pop out. There are many holes in tonsils so can be tricky at times. Just make sure you brush your teeth really well and more importantly the back of your tongue. Because these "tonsil stones" are built up of bacteria. Hope I've helped.
