What is a deviated septum? 

The nasal septum is the wall that separates your right nasal passage from your left.  It is almost always deviated to one side or the other.  This happens as your nose develops and as a result of trauma.  A deviated septum does not necessarily need to be corrected unless it is found to be a cause of your problem.
