Hi thanks for your question.
Relax Adenoids do get enlage in this age group and regress as age increases.Sometime they get infected and need antibiotics.
However if symptoms are sever and interfer day to day life ,adenectomy( surgical removal of adenoids) is permenent treatment.
Hope this answers your question.
