Chest X-Ray
I recently had a chest X-Ray and was told that everything looked fine. My question is what all would a chest X-ray show? Would it show lung cancer or esophagal cancer? Something is definately wrong wth me but the doctors can't seem to pinpoint anything.

It depends on what they are looking for.  I know it can show the size and shape of your heart, lungs.  Not sure about the actual tissue.  What type of symptoms are you having?  What tests have your had and what has the doctor ruled out?

Well, I have had the stress test on the treadmill and the chest x-ray, and 3 EKG's. Was told everything looksa fine. I am thinking it is GERD or acid reflux. My doctor gave me some Prevacid to try and see if it helps. It's two weeks worth so by the time I use it all, hopefully I'll notice a change.
