Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hi there.Thank you for your question.I am Dr. SH and will be helping you out with your concerns today.
I understand your concerns about radiation but having a few x-rays done is usually not something concerning or anything that I would worry about at all whatsoever.
It is only if you have had 100s of x-rays that you need to be concerned.
This session is open for any further questions that you may have. I would appreciate it if you rate me by clicking on one of the rating options at your end on the top right hand corner as that is the only way we, the experts, are credited on here for helping you out.Kindest regards
That is a lot of radiation.
I would recommend against doing any CT scans or x-rays in future.
I would recommend investigating you with things that have zero radiation like MRI and ultrasound and not using any more x-rays or CT scans.
It is still VERY UNLIKELY that you would develop anything serious as it requires exposure to thousands of x-rays to get enough radiation to develop anything serious.
Yearly or two yearly mammograms should be okay.
That is a very low radiation risk.
Dental x-rays also carry an extremely low radiation risk.
Main risk is with CT scan.
