you can get if from trauma to your nose which could cause a hematoma of your septum. If someone has had freqent nose bleeds that had to be cauterized to stop the bleeding perforation of the septum could occur

In brief: Yes
Septal perforations typically result from trauma, prior surgery, intranasal drug use including Cocaine or for unknown reasons.
This can be treated with observation, placement of a small flexible silicone "plug" or surgery. I hope this information is helpful. Stephen weber, M.D. Lone tree facial plastic surgeon.
