Tonsils And Adenois

Hi There
My Son Is 3 And A Half Year Old. He Does Not Have Any Fever. He Is Not Getting Sick. He Is A Very Normal Child. He Is Eating Well. Nothing At All.
The Only Problem Is That His Tonsils Are Enlarged And Red. In April 2007 He Got Sick For One Week And From That Time His Tonsils Did Not Return To Normal Size. Everytime His Tonsils Catch A Virus They Get Enlarged Again.
They Never Returned To Normal Size And When They Catch A Virus They Are Much More Enlarged. He Only Snores At Night.everytime It Gets Two Or Three Weeks Snoring To Rest Again.
Does It Mean They Have To Be Removed? (almost Kissing Tonsils).
By The Way I Dont Know If His Adenois Are Enlarged Too.
So What I Want To Ask, Do I Have To Worry If He Is Like This Or Can I Wait Till They Shrink On Their Own When He Becomes Older And If This Is The Solution, At What Age?
If He Does Not Have Any Problem Like Ear Infection, Fever,swallowing, Or Any Other Symptom, Could It Wait.
Please Answer Me Because I Am Worried A Lot And Also In October He Will Begin School(his First Year) And I Want To Know If It Can Wait Or Not.
Thanks For Replying
