Spine sticking out, hunching a lot, lordosis. Can it be fixed through surgery?

Hello! I have a question about my spine . I am 16 years old and since I was younger I noticed my spine sticks out. I have realized I do hunch a lot but I am going to pay attention to my posture more. When I bend over the bottom of my spine sticks out with a little bump/hump. Then at the top of my neck my spine sticks out too. I m very scared of this. Can it be fixed without surgery? What kind of doctor do you reccomend me to see, a chiropractor or an orthopedic? I have no pain but I am very self cautious of it. I really do not want surgery. Could it be something I heard of called lordosis?

You may have a slight kyphosis. This is when the spine protrudes a little. I suggest you see a physiotherapist who will be able to examine your back and posture to assess whether there are any abnormalities. The physio may be able to suggest appropriate exercise to help improve your posture. Spinal surgery is a major operation and not useful for correction of minor abnormalities or the spine.
