Adenoids are tissues that are located behind the nose and the roof of the mouth. They are not directly visible and can be seen by using a medical scope or via x-ray. The main function of an adenoid is to stop bacteria from entering the system through the nasal passage. Many times adenoids become inflamed in kids as the body begins fighting a bacterial infection. This causes a blockage in the nasal passage due to which a child has difficulty breathing through the nose.
The symptoms of enlarged adenoids would be:
- Difficulty breathing through the nose
- Breathing from the mouth
- Green or yellow mucus discharge
- Sleep apnoea
- Snoring when sleeping in the night
- Recurring ear infections
- A nasal tone and voice when speaking
- Breathing noisily
- Persistent sinus symptoms
In most cases, adenoids shrink with age but sometimes in children and adults, enlarged adenoids make the process of breathing discomforting. Surgery is the conventional method of removing adenoids.
