Ct scan & 2 ultrasounds july '12 showed 3 ovarian cysts (10 cm)-1 mo. Later also showed cyst at "mouth" of cervix. Now dull ache in abdomen/pain in ba?

How risky is an abdominal CT scan for a 34 year old male? Starting to get nervous after reading a lot of material online.
Too long to list: Ct scan is a form of x-ray in which the radiation source & detectors rotate around the patient as she moves through the plane of the beam. As with all x-rays, it measures different density to the radiation, but the computer takes the raw data and reconstructs cross sectional images like slices of bread. While still limited to differences in density, it can resolve to a few millimeters. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
