Welcome in H.C.M.

I have gone through your query and after thoroughly analyzing the CAT scan report it appears that you are having" Deviated nasal septum with concha bullosa right with pan sinusitis".

Your problem is a treatable disease but truly speaking surgery is the only answer to your problem. You have three defects in your nose and paranasal sinuses but these three may corrected in a single sitting by expertise hands of an ENT doctor.
