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!

In brief: 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.
