Harmful Effect Of CT SCAN
I went through CT SCAN at the age of 19 now I have a fear that getting myself exposed to radiation up to 10 msv has put myself at higher risk of getting cancer. I know that our body has permissible limit to repair itself from radiation. But 1 ct scan is equal to 200 chest CT SCAN, that what is making me worried.

That's thing of the past. No need to worry dear. So many CT scan are done on everyday basis. Nothing to be taken seriously. Side effects happen in the rare of the rarest cases. All the best
