Hello and hope you are doing well.

Swollen adenoids are usually due to infections or allergies. They can cause breathing difficulty, snoring and sometimes ‘glue ear’. Often the symptoms are mild but may flare up during a cold or throat infection. Adenoids normally gradually shrink in later childhood and usually almost disappear by the teenage years. So symptoms tend to clear in time.

But if the symptoms are severe or recurring, then your doctor may advise removal. So, please discuss the various options with your consulting doctor.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
