Mild chest pain few times & less than 1min.normal ECG but chest x-ray had some widening of right superior Mediastinum. Dr asked for CT. Should i getCT

Yes definitely.

Chest
A widened right paratracheal stripe region (right superior mediastinum) on a frontal view chest xray can be of no significance or serious. In obese people there can be extra fat in the mediastinum causing this xray finding and is of no significance. Enlarged blood vessels known as aneurysms, enlarged lymph nodes from benign or malignant causes, and tumors can also cause this finding. Ct is best.

What do you advise if I have chest x-ray that shows something unclear on lungs?

Further evaluation.

First is to compare with any prior chest xray as most findings present for at least two years without change are benign. Otherwise either a followup chest xray or ct scan would be advised depending on what the initial finding looked like. Pneumonias can clear up on treatment, small nodules commonly are benign but can be due to cancer so followup with xray or ct is usually recommended.

When I try to take a deep breath it feels like something is stopping/blocking me from the middle of my chest to my throat. I have had a chest x-ray?

Depends when occurs.

Chest
The limitation can be during exercise and this could be asthma. You may need to see a pulmonary MD for PFT and exercise PFT as well. If CXR OK and no other symptoms then need to reproduce when the symptoms occur. Need a good physical exam.

Dr. David Savage answered:

Can you explain if it's required to get bloodwork and a chest x-ray before a breast augmentation?

YES

Breast
Breast augmentation is major surgery and requires a general anesthetic. These risks are low, but it is not recommended to accept them for a cosmetic procedure that is not medically necessary. Sometimes we find significant medical conditions with these tests that end up being more important to the patient in the long term than the surgery itself. It is important to be safe.

I can't take a full deep breath and get pain in the middle of my chest and my ribs when I breathe in. Have been on many doses of AB's, had chest x-ray

Anxiety or asthma

Pain
I see no medical history in your profile. This sure sounds like anxiety induced asthma. I would advise rest. Meditation. And beginning to work on the body mind connection.

I HAVE BEEN SMOKING FOR LAST ONE AND A HALF YEAR (ABOUT 6 CIGARETTES A DAY), WILL IT APPEAR ON MY CHEST X RAY?

Destroys lungs

Oral_cancer
Won't show up now, not yet. It will for sure one day when it is too late. Smoking does no good. If you stop smoking now, you will keep your lungs healthy.

Obtain both a pulmonary and GI consultation. Msny patient who reflux stomach acid can have acough; however, lung function should be assessed by a pulmonary expert. You may need a CT scan of your chest and upper endoscopy to rule out reflux.

Cough x 1yr., fatigue, joint pain, platelet 451, Abs Monocyte .7, dry eyes, mouth sores, normal chest x-ray. Could this be Sarcoid?

NO

Cough
Usually X.ray will show hilar adenopathy with sarcoidosis. Your description points more to viral upper respirator syndrome. Drink warm fluid, take analgesics and see your doctor if symptoms persist.
