It might be pushed in an inch or two, I can't really tell for sure. I've known about this for at least 10 years now, so asking about this now is pretty random. Anyway, I don't know why or how this happened, when I'm toucing it, it gets a little bit sore, I'm 20 years old. Thank you.
A piece of my lower rib, on the right side, is missing?

This is crazy I have the exact same thing, I noticed this like a year and a half ago. I'm currently 17. It feels like there's just a gap on the right side of my ribcage a few ribs up.
Does anyone have any updates on what this is about?
Unfortunately I can’t diagnose you, however I thought I’d comment to say I too have this exact same ‘deformity’ with my ribs. Just as described by yourself and another commenter, the bottom of my rib cage feels uneven where my ‘false ribs’ would be however this is only on my right side. It also feels pointy, and deffs isn’t a normal development of ribs. There’s no pain, unless I press and play with the area too much. It’s so strange there’s nothing else online that can describe this as well as the users in this forum have. I have a dr appointment in a few days, I’ll ask about the ribs and let you all know what they say. Hopefully it can help others looking for some answers & put our minds at rest!
Hey y’all - I’m here too with the same weird thing! I’ve noticed this since I was a kid. Everyone describing the “missing” portion bottom 2-3rd rib (depending on where you start the count?) from the bottom connecting it to the next rib. THATS EXACTLY IT! Wild bc I haven’t had any issues from it or had it bother me, is just there and wonder if it’s something I should ask about. Anyone talked to the Dr about it?
Hi, I'm experiencing the same exact thing on my right side too. I'm also 20 and I noticed it about 10 years ago. It feels like a space is missing and it hurts. I have no idea at all how this happened. I'm just confused.
Which rib and where on it?
