In brief: See an ENT

A deviated septum only needs to be fixed if it is causing significant symptoms, typically nasal obstruction.
Obviously, the term "signficant symptoms" is subjective and worth discussing with an ENT physician.

In brief: Deviated septum

A deviated septum can be corrected surgically to bring the septum to the midline.
If there are symptoms like nasal obstruction, snoring or recurrent sinusitis, have your nose evaluated by a board certified otolaryngologist.
