ADENOID TREATMENT

Adenoid is a tissue located between the nose and throat. It captures the viruses and bacteria entering the nose through respiration and produces antibodies. After 6 years of age, the nasal flesh starts to shrink and takes the adult size around the age of 12 and becomes ineffective. However, nasal flesh may grow due to frequent upper respiratory tract infections, immune system diseases, allergic reactions, genetic causes or passive smoking. Rarely, adults may also have nasal flesh. Inflammation of the nasal flesh is called adenoiditis and growth is called adenoid hypertrophy.

SYMPTOMS OF ADENOIDS

  • Difficulty breathing through the nose, breathing by mouth
  • Snoring and sleeping with mouth open
  • Nasal talking
  • Sore throat and difficulty swallowing
  • Sweating and drooling during sleep
  • Sleep apnea (sleep disorder)
  • Failure in the class
  • Recurrent otitis media
  • Anorexia
  • Deterioration of jaw bones and teeth
  • Facial deformity (adenoid face)
  • Growth hormone secretion disorder
  • Cervical lymphadenopathies

TREATMENT OF ADENOIDS

First, drug treatment (antibiotics) is tried. If there is no inflammation in the nasal flesh, the nasal flesh may be expected to shrink spontaneously.

However, if the nasal flesh often causes middle ear inflammation, nasal flesh surgery (adenoidectomy) may be preferred if there is sleep apnea, difficulty in breathing, speech disorder or a disease of the nasal tissue or frequent recurrent nasal infection.
