Hello. Since i was about fourteen I have noticed a strange, and very embarassing indifference in my chest growth. It seems that my left chest bone is growing faster than my right. It is protruding out about half an inch in comparision to the right breast.
My doctor stated that he was unaware of what it was but assumed it may be a result of sleeping on my side? He is an amazing doctor who has saved my life already, but I really think there has to be another reason for it. Anyone have any ideas as what it could be, how it was caused, and how I could even it out without a major medical procedure?

kehorner makes a good point...I am surprised your doctor dismissed your concern with "maybe you slept on it wrong", that is a weird reply. For if everyone slept wrong, wouldn't we all have this concern?
Thanks guys. I found out what it is! It is called Pectus Carinatum. It is a protrusion of the chest. It stated that 25% of the people who have it have a family member with a similar ailment. Well, my brother has Pectus Excavatum, the exact opposite.
It also can result in symptons similar to asthma, which I have had before. Long story short, the only non-surgical method to fix it is a chest plate. I am not sure I want to do this, but we are going to look into it. Seventeen might be a little too late to fix it.
