Not XR: A x-ray would not be particularly helpful, unless it's a large tumor. Ct would be much better, and should be able to pick up enlarged lymph nodes. Watch out for contrast though. Kidney stone cts are done without IV contrast, but you will need contrast to look for tumor (at least much better at it). Talk to your doctor to make sure whether you are doing it with or without contrast. ...Read more

However, a chest xray is not a reliable way to rule out adenopathy, because the lymph nodes have to get quite bulky to show up. CT is a much more sensitive and specific test for mediastinal adenopathy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It could : Dear Cesar: yes, CBD could help with anxiety although THC could also help with mild depressive symptoms. There are no clear guidelines here and you will have to try different mixes.
