The tonsils are oval collections of tissue located in the back of the throat on the right and left sides. A thin layer of moist skin called the anterior tonsillar pillar covers the front part of the tonsil. The uvula hangs down from the middle of the soft palate, between the tonsils.
The adenoids are located above the soft palate on the back wall of the throat near the eustachian tubes. The eustachian tubes are small air passages that connect the space under the eardrum with the back of the nose. When you clear your ears on an airplane, you are equalizing air pressure through the eustachian tubes.
The primary purpose of the tonsils and adenoids is to trap and destroy viruses and bacteria. Some children and adults are prone to develop infections of the tonsils and adenoids.
These infections can be caused by many different kinds of bacteria, though the one most people hear about is streptococcus. If these infections are especially severe, or if they occur frequently, it may be best to remove the tonsils and adenoids.
Removing the tonsils or adenoids does not cause any problems with the immune system. In fact, if frequent infections have been a problem, removing them can make the immune system’s job easier.
Large adenoids and tonsils blocking the airway can cause heavy snoring or constant mouth breathing. This can be another reason for surgery in certain patients.
In some cases, a person’s overall health can be significantly improved by removal of the tonsils and adenoids. Each patient is different and results may vary.
The benefits of surgery can include the following:
Fewer sore throats: Once the tonsils are removed, patients are less likely to have bacterial infections in the back of the throat. However, it is still possible to get viral infections in this area.
Decreased snoring and mouth breathing:Patients who snore, or mouth breathe because of enlarged tonsils and adenoids, often have a decrease in these symptoms after surgery. However, if other problems exist, such as a crooked nasal passage, a long soft palate or a thick tongue, these symptoms may continue after the procedure.
Fewer ear infections: Patients with frequent ear infections may benefit from removal of the adenoids if they are blocking the opening of the eustachian tubes. If frequent ear infections continue after surgery, you may need to talk with your Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) doctor about other treatments, such as allergy testing, antibiotics or ear tubes.
