just a side note, i've already been to the doctor about this, and he said there was nothing to worry about. i was just wondering if anyone else has this problem or if they have an idea of cause....basically, the right side of my sternum is elevated from the left side of it. it's almost like there is a step from the left ribs to the right ribs. i would have to say about 2/3 of the way to the bottom of my sternum the disparity is at its highest at about 1/4 in. or so. had trouble finding information on the internet. any help is appreciated.

I have exactly the same my right sternum is bigger than the other side, my doctor joked to me and said theres no cure. Well he lied there is.
There are special clinics dotted around that do cardiac operations to correct on the NHS. I haven't done mine yet as the operation sounds nasty.
but i know what u mean getting paranoid and all !!

It's hard to be humble, when you're as great as I am.
Women want me and guy's wanna be me!
I have never had a bad day in my life!

You have no idea have you what its like to grow up not being normal to be bullied for being different. It gets you so paranoid even councilling and medication doesn't cure the feeling of being inferior.
So for you to come up with a lame joke like that just reminds me of how thoughtless some people are out there are.
I want to get something of my chest the thing is the saying is literal, and nobodies laughing !!
