Nasal Septum Deviation

Nasal septum deviation is a physical disorder of the bone and cartilage in the nose that separates the nasal cavity into the two nostrils. A septum is considered deviated if it does not lie centrally, symmetrically with respect to the two nostrils, which is often caused by injury or trauma to the nose.

A deviated septum requires medical attention only if it causes other health issues or negatively impacts the quality of life.
