Obstruction? Nothing: A deviated septum can be symptomatic or asymptomatic and cause no problems whatsoever. However in more severe cases it may contribute to nasal airway obstruction.

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. B sure to have your nose evaluated by a board certified otolaryngologist.
