Can ct scan cause a brain tumor?

Nope. They use them on newborn babies, they use them on very elderly ladies and gentlemen and they use them on cancer patients safely everyday. They wouldn't use them if they weren't safe. Anyway, you're not living in the machine are you? No. You're just spending a little bit of time there. I've had them with no problems, even 15 years later.

A ct scan will show a brain tumor not cause one. From the area and size that my brain tumor was on, I really believe it was from my cell phone usage from 96-06 when I first started having symptoms and 2008, when I had my seizure and diagnosis.
