Has blocked nose. X-ray reported adenoid. Is it advisable to do surgery or ask for medication only?

Dear Doc,
My son is 14yrs old and he snores in the night. He has blocked nose. We took him to an ENT specialist yesterday. He said there is infection and the X-ray suggests that he has adenoid. He has asked to a CT scan tommorow. What would you suggest if the Doc recommends surgery. Is it advisable to do surgery or should ask for medication only. How effective or dangerous is the surgery.

Welcome to HCM.
If it is recurrent after proper treatment then,
Adenoid removal is advisable because he will get complete relief after it .snoring will cure and he can concentrate in his study and other activity.
Now a days endoscopic surgery is more preferable and it is very safe no need to worry for it.Keep regular follow up to your treating doctor.
