    I've noticed recently that my left part of my ribcage sticks out significantly more than my right (which is pretty flat), particularly towards the centre of the chest (near breastbone), it jsut sticks out at a funny angle.

    Its abit odd I guess, is this a normal thing, like having two different sized feet? Have had my chest checked over by docs and they've never mentioned it as a concern.
    Yeah I'm exactly the same XD

    I'm worried about the current state of my ribs,over the last year or two the left hand side has became more and more protrusive and has almost created a point in between my lower and upper ribs; it sometimes creates pain around this area, any advice is appreciated.

    mines exactly the same. left peck and rib cage is bigger than right... ironically you comparing it to different sized feet, my left foot is also bigger than the right.

    I have it but its also when I stand up. And will it go away when I'm older because I'm only 14, can it be something that doesn't stay there. If not can I have it removed

    I have the same thing ! On my left side !
    I was wondering if anyone knows if this can had an affect on your heart ? I tend to get pains, nothing I'm too worried about. But have never put two and two together! Wondering if I should get it checked out ?
    It's like my third rib up on my left side sticks out a lot, and then it's like it goes flat instead of curved (if that even makes sense)

    Ive been having breathing problems also! And at first i thought it was because of my uneven ribs but i guess not since it came back clear. Tell me if there is something wrong (breathing wise) so i can tell my doctor what might be the cause of my breathing problems.( i dont have asthma tho so this is why my breathing has been huge concern for a year and a half)

    My left side of the rib cage protrudes a lot more than my right side too, I’ve had a couple of ECG’s done due to concerns over pain I sometimes experience in my side but everything was clear

    @Selkey Regarding your breathing certain positions continuously could cause you to have breathing difficulties. I thought it was health issues but wasn’t. I saw a massage therapist (groupon deal) and she gave me a deep Tissue message (not aromatherapy) and as soon as I got up I noticed a massive different. To guys that row etc. I went to holistic health gogde st for the Londoners and saw a lady call Seema Douglas. She amazing!!! For how My chest and back felt after £24 was ridiculous to pay even on a discounted deal for groupon ridiculous

    I'm closing this thread cos it's old and that gets confusing. If anybody wants to talk about anything similar please feel free to make a new post.
