I am 20, the right side of my rib

Patient : I am 20, the right side of my rib cage is raised. The left seems perfectly fine whereas the right there is a lump which goes down vertically. I cannot remember always having it but I first noticed it when In 2011 when I was 15. When I first noticed it- it felt really uncomfortable and caused quite a lot of pain. At the time It was also really painful to eat and drink. Over a period of time it become less and less painful but I still get a really sharp pain every now and then. Please help?
