Hi doc This is Hingshu for Bangladesh I am

Patient: Hi doc .. This is Hingshu for Bangladesh. I am anmale and 24 now. I have a deformity called pectus carinatum which i learned from internet. Bones of right side of chest is higher than the left side. I was probably 12 when this started to happen and eventually it has gone upish over time. I never went to a doctor because i felt shame for this. But now i realize what a mistake i have done. I could be treated with brace. Now is there any treatment for it other than operation. I have attached images of my chest.
