Adenoid glands belong to the immune system and contribute to protecting the body from viruses and bacteria. An adenoidectomy is a procedure to remove the adenoids because of an injury or allergies that are bloated or inflated. Glands above the mouth roof, below the nose are adenoids. They look like little tissue bunches, and in young children they have an essential aim. Adenoids are part of the immune system and help defend the body from bacteria and viruses. Adenoids tend to decline in children between 5 and 7 years old, and may almost entirely be disappear by teenagers.

What does adenoidectomy mean?

Operation to remove the adenoid gland is an adenoidectomy or adenoid reduction. Adenoids may also expand, develop or be Chronically Infected when defending the corporeal system against viruses and bacteria. This may be because of diseases, asthma or other causes. Some kids may be born with abnormally high adenoids too. If a child is expanding, adenoids may cause complications by blocking the airway partly. Children may develop lung issues, ear infections or other symptoms, which can lead to snoring or more extreme conditions including sleep apnea at night.

Nasal discharge, congestion and sinus inflammation may also be found chronically (long-term). Extended adenoids can also impact the recurrence (return) of ear infections as well as recurrent ear fluid that can lead to transient loss of hearing. Operation is also required to extract the glands. The ability of an infant to combat illness was not shown to have them removed. For children between ages 1 and 7, adenoidectomy is usually performed. When a child turns 7, adenoids tend to shorten and in adults remains are known as vestigial organs.
