Rib is thick and sticks out

Hi i’m a 19 y/o female, about a year ago I noticed that one of my ribs on the left side (3rd rib) was sticking out a lot compared to the right. I’d never noticed before but my doctor didn’t think anything of it.
A year later it’s still here and I went back to a different doctor and he ordered a chest x ray. The results take ages to come back and i’m really worried that the lump might have been serious all along.
The doctor has not given me any idea about what could be causing the lump and I really need some advice.
Thanks

This symptom may be due to scoliosis (curvature of the spine).
