I had 3 ct scans. Abdomen/pelvis last year, head and chest this year. Now I find out they give you cancer! Should I be concerned?

No. The radiation from a CT scan is the same or less than you get from natural causes while flying in an airplane. The conditions that the CT scan is monitoring are far more dangerous.

(We don't know how much). 3) Whatever the theoretical risk, there must be a good reason to do the CT in the first place. I would worry more about why so many CTs. Read more...
