    I think you mean adenoids. This is the lymphatic tissue in the upper part of the throat behind the nose. It is just like the tonsils in your throat. From the medication that you mention, it seems like your doctor thinks that this may be a result of acid reflux. You can read more about throat symptoms due to rising stomach acid in this article – http://www.healthhype.com/lpr-reflux-what-is-laryngopharyngeal-reflux-disease-symptoms.html

    Your gastroenterologist will be able to advise you further and probably conduct further investigations to verify your ENT’s findings and possibly change your medication.
