    Question Pectus carinatum? my chest/ribs are weird

    I'm 16 years old and a male. for as long as I can remember, my chest has "stuck out" further than most guys my age. now I have recently discovered what pectus carinatum is and I'm pretty sure I do not have that and if I do, it's a minor case. There is not a certain point of my ribs/chest that pokes out, it's just slight slanted down and out I guess you could say. What I'm trying to figure out is what it is.. maybe its barrel chest but IDK?? from the front, I look totally normal but from the side, it kinda looks like I have saggy breasts... but I am very thin and I'm a guy lol. please tell me what this could be and if it could be fixed. I will try and send pictures soon. Thanks

    Your pediatrician should be able to advise you if this is normal or something that can be or needs to be corrected. An orthopedic surgeon would be next.
