During your medical examination, your doctor may determine that your tonsils, located at the back of your throat, or your adenoids, located at the back of the nose are the cause of your snoring. This condition is more common with children, but can also affect adults if the tonsil or adenoids are enlarged.

The removal of tonsils or adenoids is an outpatient surgery that is performed in an operating room using general anesthesia. Recovery at home takes about a week with patients experiencing sore throat pain and slight bleeding.
