Uneven Sternum?

All my life I have had an uneven sternum. My right side, (if you're looking at me, your left) is raised while the other side sits lower. I tend to have some pain frequently when laying on one of my sides for too long. I'm curious if there is a name for this / if I should be getting it checked out. The difference between sides is fairly noticeable if laying on my back. Thanks!

    It's actually called "tilted sternum".

    It can effect the sternoclavile joint. The inside of your collar bone.

    I don't think there is a fix, but you should talk to a thoracic dr.
