In the case of sleep apnea and snoring (provided that the tonsillar is hypertrophic), tonsillectomy is definitely necessary both in adults and children. Apart from this, if there is one-sided tonsillar extension (which is a reason for medical suspicion of tumor), if there is repeated throat infection for 5 times in a year or for 3 times in each 3 consecutive years, if there is foul breath that cannot be explained by any other reason, then tonsillectomy if also suitable.
