Do i have Pectus Carinatum?

Patient : Hello, i am a 15 year old male who has observed weird bone protrusions from his chest. I have put a picture below of my bone, it is directly below my chest are, and has gotten noticably larger. I am concerned, but i do not like going to my parents. I would really like this to go away, but i do not prefer surgery. Are there any other alternatives? And is this bone really due to Pectus Carinatum??
