1 Answer:

Hello Dini Dwii II,


Scoliosis is a deformity of the curvature of the spine to the left or right side or a combination. The cause of scoliosis is not known generally occurs during growth spurt. Some cases of scoliosis can occur together with other disorders such as cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, infection of the spine, and congenital abnormalities.


Scoliosis or abnormal curvature that occurs can be mild to severe. Symptoms experienced by scoliosis patients include:

Shoulder height is not the same height, pelvic height is not the same height
Back pain
Shortness of breath, if the scoliosis is severe, causing limitations to the expansion of the chest cavity while breathing

The diagnosis of scoliosis is determined based on physical examination and supporting examination of spinal x-rays. Treatment of scoliosis depends on the severity. Usually the patient is given a brace / corset with a special brace to prevent worsening scoliosis curvature. The use of a corset does not return the shape of the spine to normal. Severe scoliosis that can affect the function of the heart and lungs requires surgery to install metal devices that improve the composition of the spine.


Cancer is an abnormal and uncontrolled cell growth. Cancer is different from the disease with scoliosis. Scoliosis is not a cause of cancer. Further consultation regarding scoliosis can be done with an orthopedic specialist. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
