Comment posted Tonsil Stones, Tonsilloliths Removal Methods by Cheryl.
To Jamie: push it out with a q-tip! That always works for me, when I have a nagging one that wont come out on its own. Get a flashlight and go to the mirror, most of the time you can see the tip of it sticking out of the crypt (be warned, seeing your tonsil with a stone hanging out of it can be pretty unnerving the first time). Put the q-tip near the crypt and push like you’re popping a pimple. It usually eases right out. If the stone is big like you say, it might bleed a little.
Good luck! I hate these things.
