I've been feeling generally unwell since the 6th January but as I had not been getting better I thought I'd make a Doctors Appointment. They have no appointments until 1st February!!! I have a sore throat and a stiff feeling neck. I keep sweating and coughing up phlegm. I feel literally drained. Anyway this afternoon I coughed this up...any ideas on what could be wrong? I know this isn't a medical site but don't want to visit out of hours doctors if it's just a cold! Ps the dirty jar lid was in my car and I had nothing else to hand!!

It's a tonsil stone.... squash it... they stink!

I should add, they are harmless, Google them

Hmm not sure thats s tonsil stone plug.

No helpful advice, id say see a Dr if you're coughing anything up other than phlegm

Maybe it's like a clot of mucus?

I wouldn't wait for the 1st Feb,I'd get an appt in the morning,it warrants it.

Ring the GP surgery, tell them your symptoms and say you've just coughed up a lump of flesh, I'd be surprised if they didn't fit you in! . Did you cough up any blood or taste blood?

Looks like cartilage...

Does it stretch if you pull it? I get similar stuff from my sinuses and it comes down my throat from the back of my nose so it can feel like it's been coughed up.

EpoxyResin Mon 23-Jan-17 16:01:27 granuloma?

Either way, DOCTOR'S.
