I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. At the low doses of radiation a ct scan uses, your risk of developing cancer from it is so small that it can't be reliably measured. Because of the possibility of an increased risk, however, the american college of radiology advises that no imaging exam be done unless there is a clear medical benefit.

Cancer is a genetic disease—that is, cancer is caused by certain changes to genes that control the way our cells function, especially how they grow and divide. Genes carry the instructions to make proteins, which do much of the work in our cells.

I had cancer (lymphoma )in 2015. Now I am alright. Doctor said that now I have no cancer. Presently due to corona I fear for my life. Nobody clearly tells me to take vaccine or not. Kindly guide me in this regard.

It all depends on your general health and immunity level. For how long you feel your immunity is normal (many and frequent instances of falling prey to various illnesses reflects weak immunity). After vaccination, for few days you are prone to producing antibodies and this period is crucial as the experts say. If your immunity is strong you come out well and later vaccination buillds more strong immunity. In case of any apprehensions you should try to build general immunity by diet management, exercises, ayush immunoenhancers, yoga etc before going for vaccination. Strong immunity always saves you from deterioration and vaccination saves you from particular virus against which vaccination is done.
