Sternal asymmetry: Your breast bone (sternum) can articulate with your ribs deeper, shallower, or in the center of your your rib cage. The former is called "pectus excavatum, " the next is called "pectus carinatum." both can cause the ribs to hump up in the chest. Both are innocuous. Check with your doctor for proper diagnosis and explanation.See 1 more doctor answer
Sign of scoliosis: Scoliosis is thought of as a lateral curvature of the spine, however it is actually more of a rotation of the spine. The rotation of the spine causes the ribs to stick out on one side. Hence a rib hump. As the scoliosis worsens typically so does the rib hump.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: If the hump is in an amenable location, surgical resection of the piece of rib can make the protruding rib shape disappear. This is purely a cosmetic procedure, though. You can have chronic pain after the procedure if the nerves that run under the ribs are damaged severely. Also, many insurances will not pay for this as it is only cosmetic. If you are still interested, check with your doctors.

Xray: One of the first findings in scoliosis is a rotation of the trunk, otherwise known as an asymmetric trunk rotation or rib hump. On the other hand some people may have an asymmetry in their ribs without scoliosis. A simple xray will determine if you have scoliosis. Thank you for the question.See 1 more doctor answer
