Hello and welcome to the forum.  Yes, lung disease can be related to pulmonary hypertension.  Here's an overview of this disorder:  https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/pulmonary-hypertension/symptoms-causes/syc-20350697  There are 5 groups of causes and lung disease (copd, emphysema, etc.) are in group B.  Sleep apnea is also in group B. There's also a long list of risk factors . Talk to your doctor if you feel pulmonary hypertension is something that may be going on.  Let us know what they say.

No, I just have a deviated septum which is causing difficulty in breathing. Everything is fine with my heart till now. But, I just wanted to know if this can lead to pulmonary hypertension if I waited some months for my nasal surgery due to this covid situation.
