I am 15 and my ribcage is asymmetrical, and the left side has an indent, I guess, but only at the bottom, it is a very deep indent, but does not seem to effect any other part of my body (lungs, organs, and such) Right above the indent my ribcage pokes out more, the other side is completely normal. I saw a doctor about it, and they said not to worry. I didnt think twice about that until I discovered that my friend had the exact same thing on her left side. Should I be concerned? Is there a name for this deformity?
