The two most common problems affecting the adenoids are recurrent infections of the nose and throat and significant enlargement that causes nasal obstruction and/or breathing, swallowing, and sleep problems.

If you or your child's adenoids are enlarged, it may be hard to breathe through the nose. If the tonsils and adenoids are enlarged, breathing during sleep may be disturbed.
