yoyoyoyobrsvhdcbhv,

You do not give any information. But, pectus excavatum (a Latin term meaning hollowed chest) is the most common congenital deformity of the anterior wall of the chest, in which several ribs and the sternum grow abnormally. This produces a caved-in or sunken appearance of the chest. It can either be present at birth or not develop until puberty.

If that is what your chest looks like, then yes, you probably have the disorder.

Good luck.
