What is the Deviated Nasal Septum?

A deviated septum is defined as a bent or crooked nasal septum. The condition is very common and goes unnoticed for over 80% of the cases. The medical condition occurs when the thin wall called nasal septum that is between the nasal passages is shifted to one side. If the nasal septum is off-center, or one side of the nasal passage is smaller than the other, it is called nasal septum deviation or deviated nasal septum. Since the problem is common and goes without notice, it is evident that it does not cause a lot of problems. If the nasal septum is severely shifted or bent towards one side of the nose, it can lead to problems such as blockage of nasal flow. The same results in loss of sufficient airflow to the nose causing difficulty breathing. On the other hand, severely bent nasal septum can also cause dryness in the nasal cavity. The reduced airflow to the nose can result in the hardening of tissues in the nasal cavity or bleeding as well.
