but since that im in a lot of anxiety thinking that i will get brain tumor from that ct scan because i keep read on the net that people who get ct scan of head will get brain tumor in future even my friends told me that this ct scan will put me on high risk for brain tumor in future

the anxiety make s me lost everything even my job

1-do you thing i will get brain tumor from that contrast ct scan

2-do you thing maybe the man who control the ct machine in the hospital maybe by wrong gave me more Radiation than its allow for head by wrong or when its a scan for head the computer will control the radition

1. No. It takes a LOT more exposure. Do you know you get the same exposure from flying on a plane?
2. No. The machines are calibrated, and checked
3. Ah - see!

If you google "radiation calculator" you can find a way to tell how much you have been exposed too and what your risk is and set your mind at ease.

I have had many, many CT scans - and X-rays etc. - I am fine!
