The tonsils are two clusters of tissue located on both sides of the back of the throat. Adenoids sit high in the throat behind the nose and the roof of the mouth. Tonsils and adenoids are often removed when they become enlarged and block the upper airway, leading to breathing difficulty. They are also removed when recurrence of tonsil infections or strep throat cannot be successfully treated by antibiotics.
Tonsillitis and the need for tonsillectomies are more common in children than adults. However, people of any age can experience trouble with their tonsils and require surgery. Tonsilitis at one time were believed to have a role in child's immunity however now they are considered as vestigial organ like appendix and hence have no role in immunity. Infact enlarged tonsils can cause blockage of airway leading to sleep disorders as well as growth issues in child.
In India apart from children tonsillectomy can also be done for the adults for the same reason. The condition in adults can get aggreviated with weight gain especially in neck area. These patients also tend to develop gross sleep apnea in the longer run.
Tonsillectomy is mostly recommended if:
A person has ongoing or recurring episodes of tonsillitis
A person has recurring episodes of strep throat in a single year despite antibiotic treatment
Abscesses of the tonsils do not respond to drainage. Or an abscess is present in addition to other indications for a tonsillectomy
A persistent foul odor or taste in the mouth is caused by tonsillitis and does not respond to antibiotic treatment
In children if the tonsils are so large that they affect night time breathing, called sleep apnea
Sometimes tonsils are removed when a styloidectomy is performed for the correction of styloid process.
