You may upload the X-Ray image onto any free file sharing site such as by scanning it or uploading the image directly if it was a digital X-Ray and post a link here. Depending upon the degree of obstruction, she may require to be operated. If you wish to avoid the operation, she may require a trial with medication as the adenoids are usually enlarged in all children between the ages of 3 and 7. They usually regress after 7-8 years of age.

Hi Ahsan,

If the air way is very much compromised better go ahead and get the surgery done or else the child may have complications due to the obstruction.
