Hi Mohammed,
Welcome to HCM.
First of all the extent of nasal bone dipping into the nasal cavity will have to be evaluated. Other considerations are does it cause deformity of the nose, disfiguring the face, does it cause obstruction to nasal breathing. After proper evaluation, the apt line of management has to be adopted.
All this can be done by an ENT surgeon.
Wishing your son all the best.

Hello, welcome to Healthcaremagic. Your son seems to be having deviated nasal septum from your description. Not all the patients having DNS need surgery and is recommended only in cases which have difficulty in breathing or recurrent sinusitis or cosmetic issues. You should consult a ENT doctor for further evalutaion. In case surgery is needed, it is a relatively small surgery lasting only few hours. In it the nasal septum is repaired according to the condition of patient. Wish your son good health.

Have you had a plain CT Scan of the Para Nasal Sinuses (CT PNS) done for him? What are his present symptoms? These answers will help decide whether he need surgery. All patients with DNS (Deviated Nasal Septum) or Turbinate hypertrophy do not require surgery.
