Some things that cause this include large tonsils, a long soft palate, a large tongue. Usually, the more narrow the airway space, the louder or more habitual the snoring.While snoring can be harmless, it can also be the sign of a more serious medical condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).
