Tonsils & Adenoids
Dr. Mendy Maccabee treats Tonsils & Adenoids in Hood River
You actually have two sets of lymphatic tissue in the back of your mouth. Tonsils can be seen in the back of the throat if you look in the mirror and open wide. Adenoids are higher and part of your soft palate. These are typically removed together when they are constantly inflamed and cause problems such as recurrent infection, cough, bad breath, fevers, pain, drainage, and voice changes. Dr. Mendy will examine you in clinic and determine if you will benefit from surgery or medication therapy
