Chest x-rays dont show to much, you need an MRI for possible tumor, and
an endoscopy test will show if you have a Hernia. Also get a Mamogram to check your right breast.
(My doctors gave me a chest x-ray for rib and chest pain, nothing showed up
21 months later I had an MRI and there where 9 findings I had
Costochodritis which caused chest Pain)
If your doctors are not willing to get this test for you switch doctors, I had same problems. I had a hital hernia. and showed up on the endoscopy test.
Best of luck to you
and take care
