In brief: VERY COMMON.
Deviated septums are extremely common and are more the norm then the exception.
However, it will only cause obstruction in a small percentage of patients.

In brief: Deviated septum
A deviated septum is a common issue.
It can be caused by trauma, position in utero and even during the birth process. If there are symptoms like nasal obstruction, snoring or recurrent sinusitis, have your nose evaluated by a board certified otolaryngologist.
