The pharyngeal tonsils are actually the adenoid vegetations. These should have a thickness of 0,57 cm, a length of 0,25 cm and a width of 0,20 cm, their role being to create immunity and protect the organism from diseases. Due to the negative evolution, these become a source of infection, irritating the area of the nose and affecting some organs negatively. They are found in the area between the palate and the wall behind the rhinopharynx and are composed of lymphatic tissue from the throat. If their tissue begins to grow abnormally, they can extend and turn to polyps. Such a hypertrophy of the tonsils can appear at any age, even in babies. The faster they develop, the more they grow, thus leading to very severe complications.
