Worried about son. Can the uvula fall off?
The uvula cannot fall off on its own. It can be removed surgically (resection). A number of diseases may affect the uvula and it can become severely inflamed, elongated or even “tilted”. Even with death of the tissue (necrosis), it will not fall off. If you are concerned about the appearance of your son’s uvula, you should seek medical attention immediately.
