Your tonsils can be seen if you look at the back of your throat, but the adenoids aren’t directly visible. Both adenoids and tonsils are small tissues located at the back of the throat. They’re similar to the tonsils and are located right above them. Both are a part of the immune system, which aids in preventing and fighting infection in your body.

Adenoids are present at birth, develop until a child is between the ages of 3 and 5, and then start to shrink after about age 7. They also significantly shrink as an adult.

Adenoids help protect infants from infection during the early years by trapping bacteria and viruses as they enter the body. They are situated in the passage that connects the back of the nasal cavity to the throat. Adenoids help control bacteria and viruses that can enter through the nose. They produce antibodies to help your body fight off infections.

Infected adenoids typically swell up, but when the infection goes away, they usually shrink back to their normal size.

Some children are born with enlarged adenoids, which can also be brought on by allergies.

Various symptoms, such as the following, can be brought on by enlarged adenoids:

路 blocked, stuffy nose

路 sore throat

neck glands that are swollen

issues with nose-to-mouth breathing
