Adenoids are lymphatic tissue found in the airway behind the nose in the back of the throat. Adenoids are made up of the same type of tissue as the tonsils. Both help fight infections. However, unlike the tonsils, they cannot be seen by looking in the throat. Adenoids are found in children and begin to regress before puberty. In children, enlarged adenoids can cause obstruction of the nasal airway leading to difficulty breathing, breathing through the mouth, nasally voice, ...Read more
Nasal congestion: Adenoids sit behind the nose. In children enlarged adenoids are somewhat common and can result in nasal congestion, post nasal drip, runny nose, and contribute to sinus infections. Usually this is short-lived and no therapy is necessary but if lasting more than a month, consideration of nasal steroids and saline is made for treatment. Sometimes an adenoidectomy is performed. ...Read more
The other way around: It is likely the other way around. Chronic rhino-sinusitis from any etiologies causes your adenoids to enlarge. Adenoids are local lymphatic tissues that drain from surrounding tissues. When there is chronic inflammation in the nasopharygeal area, adenoids will be big. Then with enlarged adenoids, they will further obstruct the drainage causing more congestion. An allergist or ENT can help you. ...Read more

My son aged 6 years has enlarged adenoids gland X-ray shows 50% what to do now. Can surgery be avoided?
Depends on variables: Tonsils and adenoids tend to grow faster than the rest of the body until about 8 years of age. Then they plateau in size while the kid continues to grow. Clinical problems such as sleep apnea is aggravated by this, allergies, infection and the like. If sleep apnea is present at 6, it is likely to worsen. This may make surgery a reasoned choice. If not symptomatic, it should improve by 10-14. ...Read more
I was prescribed nasonex (mometasone) for enlarged adenoids. The doctor said to take it in the morning but I keep forgetting. Can I take it at night instead?
Anytime OK...: There is actually no study showing any particular time Nasonex (mometasone) should be used. It may be even better to use at night because you will be asleep and the healing can occur. If you keep forgetting to use it in am as you were instructed, it is not helping you. So, use it at night when you can remember--it is better than not using (if it works and no side effects). Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Not necessarily: Enlarged tonsils and adenoids in children is a common finding. Unless the tonsils and adenoids are causing more problems than they are worth (labored breathing at night is impacting the quality of sleep or there are recurrent infections) then the size is of no great consequence. A visit to an ENT doc is still recommended to fully evaluate. ...Read more

It is straightforward to evaluate the adenoids with an x-ray or an ENT doctor can pass a small fiberoptic scope through the nose and take a direct look. Since asthma and acid reflux are common, they could be seen in patients with enlarged adenoids, but there is no mistaking big adenoids if you look. ...Read more

Maybe??: You cannot see the adenoids directly. They lie above the soft palate. An ENT has either mirrors wherein he can stick them in the back of the throat like a dentist and look forward and see them or better yet a flexible fiber optic tool which hw inserts in the nostril and threads it in and looks forward. It is usually the vibration of the uvula, that hanging piece, that causes the snoring. ...Read more

Ok for 8monthold use nasonex (mometasone) steroid nasel spray for slightly enlarged adenoids. History trach, bronch, lary malacia. Operated coarc aorta bicuspid valve?
No simple answer: A simple answer would be to say that Nasonex (mometasone) is a pretty benign drug in most instances - and that would be true. However, you describe a very, very complex case with complex respiratory issues. I would only use this drug if the physicians managing your child say ok. It should have no effect on the heart problems. ...Read more

Since your child noted a resolution of the snoring it seems like now there are a few options.
