What are Adenoids?

Adenoids are a mass of lymphoid tissue located behind the nasal cavity. They are part of the body’s immune system. They serve as infection fighters in babies and young children by trapping and filtering bacteria or viruses that enter the body through the nose or mouth.

All infants are born with adenoids and have them through the childhood phase, but they start to shrink by the age of 7 – 8 years as the body develops other ways to fight germs. Most people’s adenoids disappear by adulthood.

Dr. Shree Rao is a reputed Ear Nose & Throat Specialist who uses her expertise and the resources at Dr. Rao’s ENT, the best hospital for adenoids treatment in Hyderabad, to treat adenoids problems in children.

If your child has adenoid related problems, here are some frequently asked questions that Dr. Shree Rao, Ear Surgeon provides answers for.

What are the causes of Enlarged Adenoids?

Dr. Shree Rao, as a specialist in adenoid treatment, explains that repeated viral infections like Epstein-Barr virus, adenovirus, and rhinovirus or bacterial infections such as streptococcal infections cause adenoiditis i.e. inflammation or enlargement of the adenoids. The swelling in the adenoids blocks airways and makes it difficult for children to breathe through the nose. This is mainly because the nasopharynx or upper part
of the throat that lies behind the nose is smaller in children.


Dr. Shree Rao elaborates that the symptoms of Adenoiditis include:

Parents can also observe the following:

On consulting her, Dr. Shree Rao, who specialises in paediatric adenoid treatment in Hyderabad, first takes down the child’s health history.
This is followed by a thorough examination of the child’s ear, nose, and throat. If she suspects an adenoid infection, she may prescribe an X-ray of the nasopharynx to view the state and grade of the adenoids.  She may also prescribe a nasal endoscopy where a thin, flexible tube with a light and camera is inserted into your child’s nose to examine the nasal passages and adenoids. The endoscope projects the view on a video screen. 

Based on the severity and frequency of your child’s symptoms and if Dr. Shree Rao’s ENT examination reveals that the adenoids appear unduly enlarged, she may recommend that they be removed.

If your child has minor symptoms and the adenoids are revealed to be at grade 1 or 2 stage, then Dr. Shree Rao will try to manage the condition through anti-allergy medication and nasal sprays. 

However, if the adenoids are enlarged, the space within the nasopharynx has narrowed, and the child is suffering with severe symptoms,
Dr. Shree Rao is likely to recommend surgical management of the condition. Adenoidectomy using curettes and forceps is one of the oldest techniques of adenoids removal, but there are other less-invasive procedures available today, which Dr. Shree, Ear Surgeon performs skilfully and with positive outcomes. 

  • Endoscopic adenoidectomy using micro-debrider: Here, the enlarged adenoids tissue is removed swiftly, safely and effectively using a very fine blade through an endoscopic technique. Dr. Shree Rao, ear Surgeon starts this procedure high in the nasopharynx from the upper limit of the adenoid tissue which cannot be reached by the conventional curette. Done under general anaesthesia, this procedure takes less time to perform and also lesser time for healing.
  • Coblation adenoidectomy: Coblation or ‘controlled ablation’ involves using low-temperature radiofrequency and a saline solution to remove the problematic tissues gently and precisely. Using this procedure, Dr. Shree Rao, Ear Surgeon ensures the complete removal of adenoids with minimal blood loss.

Dr. Shree Rao is a top ENT surgeon who has performed several Adenoidectomy procedures successfully at her centre, Dr. Rao’s ENT, Telangana’s only full NABH, dedicated ENT facility. Using the latest techniques and her expertise over years, Dr. Shree Rao ensures that the adenoidectomy is completely painless and swift. As it is done under general anaesthesia, the child may seem to be in a confused state of mind for a few hours post-surgery. But the recovery is rapid, and your child can resume school within two days after the procedure.

Dr. Shree Rao, with her vast experience, explains that when adenoidectomy is not performed in children with severe enlargement of adenoids, there are several potential issues that may arise. These include:

  • Recurrent ear infections: which can lead to a hole in the eardrum and discharge from the ear
  • Obstructive sleep apnea: where the child stops breathing for a few seconds while sleeping at night
  • Long face syndrome: a facial distortion characterised by a long, lean face with open mouth, a high arched palate,
    an underdeveloped upper jaw, overcrowded teeth and pinched nose

Dr. Shree Rao, Ear Surgeon would be happy to examine your child and ensure the best medical treatment for adenoids at Dr. Rao’s ENT Hospital in Hyderabad. The centre is equipped with state-of –the-art infrastructure, expert resources, and above all, a deep commitment towards offering the best for your child.
