Funny rib cage
Hello everybody. I recently noticed a little abnormaliy. The left side of of my rib cage seems too be sticking out a little further, hardly noticeable with the eye, only when i suck in my stomach you can sligtly see the change. However, when i feel along the edges of the left side of my rib cage it seems as if the top ribs are bend out further, while the last couple seem to bend inwards. There is no pain whatsoever and i also haven't experienced any problems breathing. However sometimes it feels like the ribs are pressing against my body, especially when i'm trying to sleep on the left side. It isn't a real problem, however i prefer sleeping on the right side. In any event, should i be worried? Should i get this checked out? Anybody else have this problem?

I'm 19 by the way, and thanks for the help. :)
