Chest X-ray

Hello,

Could someone tell me how my father's stage four cancer could have been missed (diagnosed Jan2709) even though he received a clean bill of health on chest xrays performed on Nov 0709 and Dec1709 ?

thanks

Re: Chest X-ray

Same thing happened with my Mom. Her X-Rays were always clean. Cancer can hide behind structures like bone and don't always present in standard chest X-Rays. Heck, I had a 7 cm tumor in my right lung and it didn't show up at all on a chest X-ray...
