2. Deviated Septum

A deviated septum is a condition where, for whichever reason, the septum is off-center or crooked. This is not at all unusual and most people do have a deviated septum. In most cases, however, the deviation is very slight and is barely noticeable to the patient.

These people will have no noticeable symptoms and many will not even be aware that they have a deviated septum at all. Many other people, however, are somewhat less fortunate and their deviation is considerably more noticeable. Not only does this not look good aesthetically, but it can also lead to a number of unwanted symptoms.
