In this segment of American Health Journal, Dr. Gupreet Ahuja, physician at CHOC Children's, describes the difference between tonsils and adenoids.
Tonsils are removed less frequently than in the past, but removal may be necessary under specific circumstances, mainly difficulty breathing and infections.
When your child snores a condition called sleep apnea may be the reason. There are two types, central and obstructive. Obstructive is a greater concern.
