Risk of cancer? ?
I had 2 abdominal ct scans within 1 month... one with contrast and the other without...did I expose my self to too much radiation?...what are the chances of getting cancer?

You have zero chance of developing cancer from 2 abdominal CT scans within one month.
The level of radiation emitted by a CT scan is VERY, VERY low. You encounter more radiation every day, just watching TV or walking down the street, than you ever do from a CT scan.

Chances are VERY, VERY low. Do not spend a moment worrying about that.
