If X-Rays and Mammograms can cause cancer, then why do them annually as a checkup procedure? If they cause harm, why Drs recommend them??

If X-Rays and Mammograms can cause cancer, then why do them annually as a checkup procedure? If they cause harm, why Drs recommend them??

There's good and bad: "Everything" causes cancer. If the benefit of finding a cancer tumor early outweighs the tiny risk from an x-ray, it's ok to do. To reduce your cancer risk, keep a healthy weight and exercise (at least 30 minutes, 5 days a week). Eat lots vegetables and limit your intake of red meat or burned/charbroiled meat. Avoid smoking, which increases risk of lung cancer, oral and throat cancers, etc... ...Read more

I had a check up last saturday, and the doctor said I have a measles and he recommended me to take orpic(ciprofloxacin) ? What do you think?

I had a check up last saturday, and the doctor said I have a measles and he recommended me to take orpic(ciprofloxacin) ? What do you think?

Doesn't Sound Right: Measles is a viral infection, which would not be treated with an antibiotic (unless the lesions had a secondary infection). Talk to your doctor again. You may have misunderstood what he was telling you. If he insists that it is measles, get a second opinion. Measles can be dangerous, particularly to pregnant women. To be safe, avoid pregnant women until you are sure of what you have. ...Read more
