does anyone know anything about scoliosis?Page 1 of 1    
maybe someone can give me feedback because I am nervous.

I have a "buffalo hump" and it sucks. It's a layer of fat and it is considered a cosmetic surgery to remove even though the doctor said it can cause issues down the road.

I went to a plastic surgeon and he expressed concern my spine is curved and my shoulders are slightly uneven. He told me he wouldn't feel comfortable taking 2,500 dollars from me to perform the liposuction to remove the hump.

I went to another doctor and it looks like I have "scoliosis"... what happens next?

Are there surgeries to fix this? I'm tired of medical issues, just went through stage 1 testicular cancer.

Get a referral to an orthopaedic specialist. Everyone's degree of scoliosis and cause is different. Some require surgery when there's over 30% curvature and others can be handled by bracing or a change in what you are doing, some are caused by herniated discs (maybe that weightlifting is doing you more harm than good if not being done correctly), on and on it goes. Bottom line, seek out experts in the field.

thank you.

I believe it's genetic because my grandmother on our father's side has it... not to mention my father's brother has it as well.

Just nervous about a potential surgery and having it messed up

^^^unless and until you have intractable pain, you would be crazy to consider surgery...but i'm pretty sure you will be able to find an orthopod to operate on you to staighten out your spine if you want.
