I'm 17 and i have a mild levoscoliosis of the thoracic spine. does it affect my growth?

Scoliosis

Pain
Mild scoliosis implies 30 degree or less curve. That is not likely to cause pain in the future. It will not affect growth as you are done with spinal growth at age 17. So with that info, no worries.

my eight year old was today diagnois with mild levoscoliosis thoracic spine what does this mean can it be corrected?

It means he should

Mri
be observed closely and a MRI of the spine should be obtained as it is a left type curve rather than a right bent one which can sometimes be due to a neurologic issue. Most curves do not need surgical treatment and some need bracing. The indications for treatment depend on age of patient, size & location of curve and rate of progression or worsening.

How to treat scoliosis of the thoracic spine?

Depends of symptoms

Scoliosis
Depending on your symptoms, anything from bracing to surgery might be appropriate (or even nothing at all if you are not having significant issues). Would suggest evaluation from an orthopedic surgeon to outline best treatment options for you.

I have bone spurs on my spine, moderate scoliosis, thoracic spine, kyphosis, osteoporis and osteoarthritis. I have continued back pain ,pain in my hip?

Scoliosis back pain

Osteoporosis
There are many causes for back and hip pain, sometimes not as obvious as the curve in your spine on X-ray. Get a good evaluation 2 see if your spine is truly the problem causing the pain. Often, buttock-type hip pain comes from L4-S1, but groin hip pain comes from the hip joint itself and has nothing to do with the spine, even if the pictures look bad. Good docs can find ur true pain source. Thx!

Scoliosis on regular Xray might be due to position of your body. Please get a physical examination. Answering your Q, it depends on the type of job you are applying, but generally it is not important.
