Do not appreciate any profound risk from small amounts of radiation secondary to prior CAT scans. If you are obsessed with cancer risks, which would be low statistical odds, you might feel more secure if your worries are handled via cognitive-behavioural therapies.

Agree with Dr. Mechanic. The increase in risk from the studies is not measurable. You can reduce your risk of cancer by adopting healthy habits: Eat a mostly vegetarian diet, avoid alcohol, tobacco and street drugs, avoid excessive exposure to sun, get HPV vaccine, exercise 30 minutes each day, drink enough water so your urine is mostly colorless.
