A baby's risk of cancer does not change when he gets several typical x-rays, what do several typical x-rays mean?

1 to 5 x-rays: Normal babies (from birth up to his first birthday) might get sick with pneumonia, an abdominal problem, or have a suspected fracture in the arms, legs, hands, or feet. Those are some examples of problems in which a few x-rays might be done. From that viewpoint, normal babies are unlikely to get more than 5 x-rays. Most babies do not get any at all.

I get a typical facial pain in my palate, 24-7. Nothing could be found through x-rays and mris and tablets didn't work.What should I do?

Different: I would suggest seeing someone with training in orofacial pain or oral medicine. Tmd is usually a joint related problem. Atypical facial pain is a neurological problem and the two are not related although the symptoms can sometimes match. Treatment consists of topical or systemic medications. ...Read more

Enteroclysis: is what you probably mean. It is a detailed fluoroscopic examination of the small bowel.

Most x-rays expose you to relatively lower doses than ct scans and many nuclear medicine studies. A couple of x-rays in a week for a period will not harm you. ...Read more
