You can always ask your doctor about anything that concerns you. You might consider asking your parents to take you to a Doctor of Chiropractor to briefly evaluate your spine -- a chiropractic analysis of the problem may differ than a primary care doctor's assessment.

I'm not of the opinion that scoliosis is a familial condition. Although I do recommend that you get periodic checkups to evaluate you posture and spinal health from a reputable chiropractor or physical therapist in your area.
