Adenoidectomy and Ear Needing Popping

05/10/2010

Question:

Is an adenoidectomy a cure for ear always feeling it needs to be popped?

Answer:

In children adenoidectomy is a fairly common procedure that helps ear infection issues and eustchian tube problems. However, as a person's anatomy matures, it is less common to see adenoids as a major contributor to ear and eustachian tube problems.
