Quick CT question

I have had two head CT's in the past year and a half, one for sinus problems one cuz I hit my head. Is that very dangerous?

Hi,
How are you? I understand your concern regarding risk of frequent CT scan.While it is said that CT scans may slightly increase the risk of developing cancer, the risk is very small especially with the low doses used. Additional studies may also need to be done and what is important is the potential medical benefits being considered that usually outweigh any potential risk. Take care and regards.
