Tungkol po sa dibdib ng anak ko. 2 years old sya. Slightly mas mas malaki yung dibdib nya sa heart area. Tinanong ko na sa pedia nya kung ok lng yun, ang sabi, ok lng daw. Kulang lang daw sa sunlight. Dapat po b kami mg alala at ipatingin sa sa ibang doctor?


Question: I have a 2 year old child and his/her chest is slightly on the left side (where her heart is). I asked the pediatrician about this and the doctor said that this is ok, and that the child just lacks exposure to sunlight. Should be worried? Should we see another pediatrician/doctor?

Kung gusto ninyo makasiguro, mas maganda kung magpatingin at physical examination din kayo sa cardiologist at maaaring magpa-arrange ang cardiologist ng tests tulad ng chest x-ray, o ECG (electrocardiogram).
