Drainpipe sticking out


Ok - first I'd like to apologize if I'm not describing this properly (and the camera in my phone is busted). In our kitchen the main sewer drainpipe protrudes out of the wall. I think when the house was built the drain pipe stuck out from the studs and it seems like nothing was done to try and hide it- so basically the curvature of the drainpipe is apperant on the wall. Hope that makes sense. I haven't removed any drywall. Can I do anything to hide it? Or to make the wall "straight". I'm not sure if this is the right category, but figured I'd start here. Thank you in advance. Once again, sorry if the description is confusing...

Not much you can do about it even if the sheetrock was removed. Once it removed you could shim out the studs.

Shim out all the studs or box around it. Or perhaps reroute it.
