tonsiliths?

I was just flossing my teeth when I noticed a small yellowish/white growth on one of my tonsils. I reached back and grabbed it out, thinking it was just some left over food. I was trying to get all of it out, but it seemed to keep coming back, no matter how much I tried to get it all out. The growth is a bit solid, but not completely. Would this be tonsiliths, or something else? Thanks for your help

sorry for the quick bump, but i'd like to note also that there isn't any more of the pus/whatever it is that I can see

wikipedia has a good entry on tonsilloliths, as does the NY Times.
