In brief: Depends how much...
Radiation is naturally present in our environment.
With low levels of radiation exposure, the biological effects are so small they may not be detected.The body has repair mechanisms against radiation-induced damage.Any amount of radiation may have some risk of causing cancer, and that the risk is higher for higher radiation exposures. High doses can cause tissue and organ damage.Hope that helps!

In brief: Depends
Radiation effect depends on the type and amount of radiation and how much an individual is exposed to and what areas of the body are exposed.
