Not due to what you: Described. Head trauma and cts do not measurably increase the incidence of brain cancer.

Unlikely: There is no significant risk for a brain tumor documented for medically necessary, appropriately performed ct scans. These tests use xrays and in theory could cause a tumor, but the required dose is usually higher.
