Adenoid Hypertrophy

The adenoids are a mass of lymphoid tissue found in the nasopharynx (found at the back of the nose and above the soft palate).  When enlarged or swollen, can cause problems with your nasal airway as well as chronic middle ear problems secondary to blockage of the eustachian tubes (passages that drain your middle ear).
