Quick reference medical handouts used by Pediatric offices


My son is nine years old and suffers terribly with his tonsils, and also with his adenoids. The doctors are reluctant to do anything about it, even though my son sometimes goes for days without eating as a result of this. Can you tell me why?
    
When today’s parents and grandparents were kids, everyone seemed to have their tonsils and adenoids removed. It is now believed that removal of the tonsils is only necessary under certain conditions. These are outlined in our article When Should Tonsils and Adenoids be Removed. . We would recommend that you consult with your pediatrician again and express your concerns about your child’s tonsils. If he is having trouble breathing at night due to adenoid enlargement or has had frequent bouts of confirmed streptococcal tonsilitis, then perhaps he should have them out. If not, then hopefully he will grow out of his enlarged tonsils and adenoids during his puberty growth spurt.
