Hello, I just found this site off of a google search so I thought I would give it a shot. I started to notice a bump in my chest around when I was 13. The bump is literally in the dead-center of my upper chest, it curves outward, and is slightly "lopsided" where the right side of the bump protrudes outwards more then the left. There is no pain when I touch or hit it, though it feels solid like a bone or something. I've wanted to see a doctor and get x-rays but my family is in somewhat of a "financial crunch" at the moment so the possibilities of that are sadly small. I don't know what else I can do and from the recent searches I've done, I'm getting more and more worried that this could be something a lot more serious then just an extended bone or something. Please if anyone out there could shed some knowledgeable light on what this bump may be I would extremely appreciate it and it would make my life a lot less stressful to be honest. If it would help, I think I can provide a picture of what the bump looks like.

Please and Thank You.
