Lower fron rib or cartlidge deforming

Patient

Q: My ribs at the bottom front are dented imwards and get worse and worse every year. I no longer have pain but still gets worse. Especially if cry heavily, go to sleep on a very full stomach, not eat for ages, coughing for days/weeks and lying on front etc. They both look very deformed, one worse than other and now it seems to push my top stomach right out where no ribs are supporting it. I cant wear anything tight because looks so deformed. However when I go to drs they feel with two fingers and dont really say anything is wrong and there normal. What can I say to them to get them to listen?
