In brief: Chest X ray

A chest x ray would show lung cancer.
Your lab results suggest youmight have an auto immune disease. See an internist or a rheumatologist for a definitive diagnosis.

In brief: It should

Basic cxr should show a lung cancer of any size.
If there's any change in symptoms, a follow up cxr for comparison might be appropriate. Your ct would have a basic plain film at the outset. All your symptoms and tests are non specific, so keep working with your medical team. Focus on a good healthy lifestyle while work up continues. Good luck.
