Seeing the dentist today, should I ask him about meningioma & X-rays?
Having just read the recent study on the possible relationship between X-rays and meningioma, I am wondering about my dentist appointment today. Should I ask him if he’s heard of the study? If he wants to take X-rays, should I say “yes”? I know that the intensity of the X-rays is much lower now, but so is the capacity of my head to ward off such invasions. Or is that really true? Am I more susceptible now that I’ve had a tumor?
I wish we knew more about this.
If they want to take X-rays, I’m going to politely decline. I think that fixing a cavity is easier to fix than a re-energized brain tumor.
Has anybody else faced this situation? What have you done?
