Deviated nasal bone
- The nose is divided into two cavities by the nasal septum. Deviation of this septum is very common and of no significance if the patient does not have any symptoms. The most common symptom is nasal blockage or difficulty breathing from one nostril.
- Deviation of the nasal bone may be exaggerated following trauma to the nose.
- Patients may also suffer from nasal bleeds and sinus infections if the deviation is obstructing the sinus openings and its drainage.
- A deviated septum may also be a reason for snoring.
- You may first be advised to instil wax softener ear drops, making it easier and less painful for you during removal.
