General Q and A Answer A5618


It is hard to say if the left side of your rib cage is raised more then the right side without a physical examination. If the left side is raised for several centimeters, then a swelling or enlargement of an internal organ might have occurred. You might want to visit your family doctor for a physical examination. He might want to refer you to a specialist for gastrointestinal diseases for additional examination (X-ray, ultrasound).
