Vegetations is another word for adenoids


Published on Breathing system.

The adenoids (nasopharyngeal tonsils), also called vegetation in some languages, swell when the child does not understand the world of adults. The adenoids reflect family tension and arguments. A child who feels he/she is “in the way” or, perhaps, “unwanted” may suffer such symptoms.

Taking out the adenoids does not solve the problems. Often they develop again. In fact the surgical intervention addresses the effect and not the cause.
