Risk for cancer after 2 CT scans in a month? 1 abd/pelvis + 1 CT lung angiogram to rule out PE. 32 female. Scared!
Low risk overall: It is commonly thought that the extra risk of any one person developing a fatal cancer from a typical CT procedure is about 1 in 2,000. In contrast, the lifetime risk of dying from cancer in the U.S. population is about 1 in 5. However, the lifetime risk of cancer from a single CT scan was small—about one case of cancer for every 10,000 CTS m.cancer.gov/topics/factsheets/CT Mobile-friendly - ...Read more

Risk for breast cancer from CT pulmonary angiogram for PE? 32 female. Also had one CT of abd/pelvis before. Article said 14% increase! True? Scared!
That's bunk: I am really sorry that some cynical liar is trying to frighten you. The extra radiation in a CT scan is what you'd get by living in Denver rather than in Topeka for three months. There's no law against doctor-bashers making stuff up. By contrast, we're required to be totally honest because of our position before the law. Stop reading this garbage or you'll be miserable. ...Read more
Chances of a 19 year old healthy male with no family history of colon cancer to have colon cancer?
Unlikely: This would be very unlikely. Might be seen in certain syndromes such as familial adenomatous polyposis (fap) syndrome. Colon cancer typically presents at a later stage in life. The median age of diagnosis of colorectal cancer is around 69 yrs. Approx. 0.1% were diagnosed under age 20. Pretty unlikely. Certainly symptoms may warrant investigation, but again, likelihood is low. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My advise is when you see an oncologist, make sure to point out this information. Even though you are node negative, the oncologist may be more willing to recommend chemotherapy to be safer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
