How to detect a cancer?
My mother is suffering from pain between her chest and stomach from last few months. It goes and comes back. But few days back suddenly der felt a lump or tumor kind of thing(3-4) so we went for a checkup nd d doctor advised for a xray which came out be perfectly fine. Dey gave her some pain killers which eventually reduced d pain but it is not completely gone nd it keeps popping back. Though d lump kind of is also not visible after d medication. But i fear if it is something more serious. I have done a lot of research from my side and i fear of cancer. Doctors just recommend xray nd give some medicines and just ignore d seriousness of it. I  would be very grateful if anyone here can help me with how we can come to a conclusion dat y is it happening nd how to detect a cancer or if der is anything more to it. Or is it just me overthinking.

If she has persistent problem better to do endoscopy and ct scan of thorax and abdomen to check cause of pain. It will also rule out cancer
