I'm Worried Will I Have Cancer Because I've Had 5 Xrays And I'm 14?

You will NOT develop any type of cancer from the minimal radiation received

in five plain film x-ray examinations.

The x ray machines in use in hospitals today are very safe and the dose of radiation you get from each exposure is minimal. You need to be exposed to much higher levels to be at any risk. So I would say no, you won't get cancer from normal x rays. Please stop worrying!

Probably not. If you feel sick you should get to the doctor though

Oh geez.
I'm 42 and have had about a million xrays.
No cancer from them.
