Modern X-ray is relatively safe. The new machines produce a targeted beam which equals less scatter and less risk to the rest of your body.

Dr. Douglas Mund answered:

I had an X-ray of my back and it shows some straightening of the cervical spine and osteoarthrits. I'm 28 yrs old. What are some options for me?

Several

Cervical_spine
It is unusual for a 28 year old to have cervical arthritis unless significant trauma has occurred. The straightening indicates muscle spasm suggest physical therapy for the neck, judicious use of anti-inflammatory and pain medications and careful attention to posture and trauma avoidance. If symptoms persist you should see a rheumatologist as this may indicate the presence of inflammatory disease

I am a 41 yr. old female. 5 ft tall & 98 lbs. Just received x-ray report stating severe spondylosis in mid cervical spine. What does this mean. ?

Spondylosis

Height
Spondylosis is age related changes to the spine. This is not a disease and happens to everyone as they age. There is loss of water content of the disks, loss of disk height leading to bulging of the disks and narrowing of the spinal canal and foramen (areas where nerves exit the spine. This can lead to pressure on the spinal cord and disks. Ask to see a spine specialist to evaluate.

If your mri was normal, it is possible that the quality of your xray might have been limited. I have seen some xrays that were poorly printed amd consequently had dark spots.

Dr. Ken Yonemura answered:

My x-ray of the cervical spine showed "bilateral prominent transverse processes of c7" what does that mean and should I be worried about it? Thank you

Arm symptoms?

Neck_pain
Enlargement of the C7 transverse process can be associated with thoracic outlet syndrome and is a more subtle finding similar to the presence of a true cervical rib. Classic TOS symptoms involve the lower trunk of the brachial plexus with numbness and pain extending into the 4th and 5th digits of the hand and hand weakness.

I have upper arm swelling between my shoulder and elbow. I have had several blood tests, 3 MRI's (brain, throat, cervical spine) and ultrasound of my arm for blood clot, chest x-ray and everything is normal. Any thoughts?

Muscular

Blood_tests
it sounds like a muscle issue. i'm not sure why a brain or throat mri would be done for upper arm problem. if it is painful or affecting your function, i would have it checked out again.
