Thanks for your comment on my blog about my son's medical condition. Until his, I had never heard of the condition, however, I was familiar with the exact opposite, the pectus excavatum. My (adopted) cousin was born with it. He's in his young 20's now, and my aunt/uncle were told there were no health issues with it and not to worry. To this day, his chest is still "sunken" in and he's never had any problems.
