Xray radiation


Q: Hello first off I wanted to put it out there that I suffer from depression and OCD. I'm 25 years old and a male. Starting last July of 2013 and up until of March 2014, I have seen about 6 oral surgeons regarding a TMJ issues. Each oral surgeon except for one of them took a few panoramic x-rays. That leaves a total of 8 panoramic x-rays taken within that time frame. I recently read up on the risk of cancer and brain tumors because of the radiation of these x-rays. Being that I took 8 within that time frame, I am now worried and scared that I might develop a brain tumor or some form of cancer, and it is troubling me. Do I have a legit concern? Please help.
