Adenoids are glands, similar to the tonsils, located in the middle of the nose and the back of the throat. They often cause problems, especially in children, as they grow to be larger than usual, either naturally or through repeated infections of the airway. The main symptoms of adenoid problems are open-mouth breathing, snoring, dry mouth, bad breath, stuffy and runny nose, ear infections or obstructive sleep apnoea, among others. This condition can be treated with antibiotics to address infection, although the most common solution is the removal of the adenoids along with the tonsils.
