Has anyone had a normal chest x-ray before diagnosis?

Anyone had a normal chest x-ray only to be diagnosed with lung cancer a short time later?

    Must take a CT Scan to find out the truth that you have cancer. Mine was Lung Cancer. An x-ray won’t pick up the tumors or nodules. The more active you are for your health, the better off you’ll be.

    Hi Denvercook, When you say before, I assume you meant “previously.” I had always had clear x-rays until I started having symptoms. Then x-ray came back indicating cancer. If I misinterpreted this, please let me know. Jennifer, LungCancer.net team member

    It’s not uncommon to have a normal X-ray before diagnosis. Is mass must reach a certain size before it will show on an X-ray. So sorry this has happened to you or someone you know.
