Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

A chest x ray is a fast and painless imaging test that uses certain electromagnetic waves to create pictures of the structures in and around your chest. This test can help diagnose and monitor conditions such as pneumonia, heart failure, lung cancer, tuberculosis, sarcoidosis, and lung tissue scarring, called fibrosis.

Exactly how are you feeling? Is your physician aware of your symptoms? Are you having shortness of breath or difficulty breathing?
