Snoring 11 Year Old?

Is it normal for an 11 year old to snore every night? He's been doing it for a few years now and I'm concerned.

  • He may have a deviated septum. My son had one and couldn't have surgery until his face stopped growing when he was 17 or 18.

  • You may want to take him to the doctor, my son snored terribly and we went and he needed his tonsils and adnoids removed. His tonsils were very swollen which made his airway smaller...He never had any infections or problems to alert me other than the snoring. Now, our house is quiet at night.
