In brief: Yes

Deviated septum, a misalignment of the central cartilage of the nose, can lead to obstruction, breathing difficulties or an increase in sinusitis.
It may also obstruct the view if you have a concern about intranasal tumors. Generally if you have symptoms or problems, no one need get involved but if you have a problem, an otolaryngologist should be consulted.
