Tonsils and Adenoids

The Tonsils are two masses of tissue found on either side of the back of the throat. The Adenoids are located high in the throat, behind the nose and roof of the mouth. Together they form part of the ring of glandular tissue at the back of the throat. The tonsils and adenoids assist the body in defending against infection by “sampling” entering bacteria and viruses and becoming infected themselves. They then help form antibodies to resist and fight future infections. Unfortunately, the tonsils and adenoids often become susceptible to recurrent bacterial infections and can even trigger airway obstruction.
