Chest pain on and off.
I am male 43 yrs old. Do smoke approximately 4 cigarettes per day. Recently done Chest X-Ray and normal blood tests. All came normal. Left side chest discomfort is there. ECG was normal. The GP put a stethoscope and said that nothing to worry my chest is clear. According to him its because of anxiety. Yes, I am anxious about lung cancer. So how can I rule out Lung Cancer?

Definitely it's because of anxiety and one most important thing is that ....smokers are more prone to heart and lung disease ofcourse cancer too. If you want to rule out you may go for ADH level and cancer markers like NSE ,CEA, CYFRA 21-1, SCC Ag , CA125& TPA
