What are adenoids ?

The adenoids are a mass of lymph tissue behind the nasal cavity. Like lymph nodes, adenoids are part of the immune system .

you can see tonsils with open mouth. But you cannot see they hang at the back of the nasal cavity.

Adenoids form an important part of the defense mechanism in children. They perform a key role in fighting infections. But they become less important once a child gets older and the body develops other ways to fight germs. Adenoids shrink naturally once a child reaches 5 years of age and tend to disappear altogether by the time the child becomes a teenager.
