A 24-year-old male asked:

How likely is an chest x ray will miss a kaposi sarcoma?

Usually misses it: You asked about this before. Kaposi sarcoma usually does not cause lung or chest problems or an abnormal chest xray. If someone doesn't have KS skin lesions, they have little chance of having it elsewhere in the body. If you do have KS and your chest xray is normal, it's good evidence your lungs are not involved, but maybe not proof. Discuss with your personal physician.
