Enlarged Tonsils and Snoring
Open Teeth

Enlarged tonsils don’t always cause symptoms. However, if they’re very large, they can partially block your throat, affecting your breathing.

Other possible signs and symptoms of enlarged tonsils include

  • difficulty breathing through the nose
  • mouth breathing
  • noisy breathing
  • loud snoring
  • obstructive sleep apnea
  • restless sleep
  • daytime sleepiness
  • constant runny nose
  • repeated ear or sinus infections
  • trouble eating in young children
  • bad breath

A referral will be made to an ear, nose, and throat doctor for evaluation and treatment if needed.
