Jimmy Hoffa's lawyers secretly take pictures of individual members of the jury, find out if they have any personal problems etc. This is only shown in one scene though.

Not exactly, but there is a closeup shot of a man’s face after being shot in the head. Might’ve been near his eye.

The film follows a mafia hitman from youth to old age. We also see his mafia colleagues grow old and frail, and a couple of them do die of cancer. I would disagree with the other comment that it's not a major plot point - aging and death are major themes, and the last half-hour of the film especially lingers on this. It could certainly be upsetting if you have any anxieties or triggers related to cancer.

One minor character is known for his big ears. He has had them made smaller surgically but cannot shake the reputation or his own self-consciousness about it. It's narrated in a relatively light and humorous way though.

The main character (quietly) shows anxiety/PTSD-like symptoms when he talks about his experience in the war and when he is asked to kill people. There are no full-on panic attacks or anything.

Slurs for gay people and Italians are used (there may have been more). There are two important scenes involving an Italian-American man angrily reacting to a non-Italian guy's use of the term "you people", which he calls a slur.

There is frequent gun violence throughout the film. It doesn't linger on the shootings, however.
