Infected or enlarged tonsils may cause chronic or recurrent sore throat, bad breath, dental malocclusion,abscess, upper airway obstruction causing difficulty with swallowing, snoring, or sleep apnea. Tonsil hypertrophy and adenoid hypertrophy occurs when the tonsils and the adenoids become swollen and chronically enlarged.
