Please tell me what disorder may cause protruding sternum. I saw some pictures of persons with that chest abnormality and that scared me. Is it hereditary disease? Can it be corrected with surgical procedure? Is that so called pigeon chest?

I think that pectus carinatum is what you are thinking about. It’s deformity of chest caused by protrusion of the sternum. It’s also called pigeon chest and occurs more often in males. This disorder usually may be corrected by surgery.

but what has really helped me is trying to build up this part of your chest so it wasnt as noticable for me this wasnt easy because i never liked doing bench press because my chest would stick out even more therefore i never really worked my chest so i have been trying to do puchups every night like 10 sets of 10 or something like that if u do this for a week u will already see a difference

I have the same thing...

I've been working out alot lately, as well as indulge in the sport of wrestling.

It really has helped the appearance of my problem dissapear. However, I have uneven pectorals, so when I turn a certain way, my chest appears a little off balance. I'm still trying to fix it.

I don't think surgery is the answer. Just work your hardest and make do with what you have.

Hey I Feel Your Pain Guys

My Chest Protrudes For Some Odd Reason. I beilieve I Broke It ABout 4 Years Ago On The Trampoline And Ever Since It Has Grown Outward. Its Also Slitely turned outward on the side my heart is. it may also be an inlarged heart. Or It Just Comes Out For No Reason At All. I'm Glad that I'M NOT THE ONLY FREAK IN THIS WORLD, lol but ya this blows. I want to get a hammer and smash the c**p out of it but that might do worse.

I read about the dude who's 15 well me too. ya i was really fat and had man boobs but had a growth spert and now i'm mega skinny and now i gotta have more problems >:( it sucks having this chest thing like what the hell!

I've Been Working Out For About 7months and i'm really seeing an improvment so if that helps anyone one work out your pecs.
anyway i want a brase or whatever so i'm getting one. One question is it noticable? cuz i don't wanna look even more freakish!

My 16 year old son has severe pectus carinatum and he looks COMPLETELY NORMAL after wearing the T-Joe Pectus brace for about 7 months. He wore the brace to school and it was not very noticable under baggy shirts. He is totally happy and looks great.
To get more information about the brace, go to pectusservices.com, or e-mail me at **** and I will be happy to give you more information about our experience.
