Deviated septum: A deviated septum is not an uncommon problem. It can lead to nasal obstruction, snoring and even sinus issues. You only need surgery if you are having symptoms. Be sure to have your nose evaluated by a board certified otolaryngologist.

Sinus: Yes it can be since it can block connection between sinus and nasal cavity.
