Or there are braces you can try, which may alleviate your discomfort. Typically it stops changing after you stop growing as a teenager, but a specialist can take measurements and fit a brace.

Protruding sternum: Protruding sternum is called pectus carinatum ("hull-shaped chest"). It can only be fixed by surgery, and the surgery is only cosmetic (most insurance companies won't pay). The surgery is a large messy cut-all-your-anterior-ribs type surgery, so, unless it is bothering you a lot, the best thing to do is just to live with it.See 1 more doctor answer
