Adenoids: Hello. Adenoids are lymph tissues that are in the back of the nasal cavity. They are very important for our immune system early in life. After we become 2-3 years of age, our immune development matures and we develop more lymph tissue throughout our airway, so adenoids are not as important for our immune system. It looks like you are being worked up appropriately for your condition. Good luck. ...Read more

Sinus CT: Concha bullosa are common anatomic variants of bones in the nasal cavity. When they are large, they can obstruct the sinus drainage pathway and predispose to sinusitis. When small, usually of no concern. Small mucus retention cysts and mild mucosal thickening may be related to mild chronic sinusitis. However, these mild findings may not even cause noticeable symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends: Depends on the severity. Thickening of the septum lining and turbinate hypertrophy may be seen commonly in any condition that causes 'rhinitis' such as allergies or infection.
