In brief: Unclear question

Radiation is one of the causes of cancer.
It may act synergistically with other carcinogens, e. G. Tobacco. There may be a delay of years or decades between radiation exposure and cancer. Many cancers, including lung, bone, leukemias, brain, skin can result from radiation exposure.
