Basically as the title says just curious. I've had quite a bit of ct scans due to anxiety. Maybe near ten. I know four head due to two concussions and maybe four to six abdominal scans. Majority unneeded. I had most of them this year due to my anxiety being so high. A couple were a few years back. I've been having some different things going on lately and keep thinking its cancer. I haven't had a normal bowel movement for three weeks or more. Going 4to 6 times a day and I've had a continuous sore throat for about a month so I keep having a slight thought in my head cancer from the cts.

I would call the doctor just because symptoms have persisted or are bothersome.

I don't want to scare you but several doctors have refused to send me for scans due to the radiation and possibility of cancer in years to come. I highly doubt your symptoms are caused by cancer. Sore throat=viral infection and your bowel movements can be caused by anxiety, diet and many other things other than cancer. Still go to your doctor though.
