My 11 year old daughter has scoliosis. Sometime in the last few months I have noticed that she has a dent in the centre if her rib cage. This dent is very small but big enough for me to have noticed. Tonight she pointed it out to me for the first time. I have had a quick search on the internet and have come up with "Pectus Excavatum", which seems to be connected somehow/sometimes with scoliosis.
My question is - does anyone know anything about this? If she has it, is it likely to 'progress' with her scoli? Am I just becoming paranoid???
Thank you in advance,
