Question
Posted by: pidgeon :-) | 2004/10/11

I have a big than average rib cage.

I have quite a big rib cage, and i dont like it. it bugs me, i dont know why, but it does, it makes me feel abnormal, and i think it looks ugly. is there ANYTHING i can do about it? like a major operation, where pieces of bone can be removed?

Pidgeon, it sounds like you might have pectus carinatum and the best would be to see a thoracic surgeon about it. He will be able to tell you whether surgery is a viable option or not in your specific case. Good luck.
