Why are people with no symptoms getting ct scans once a year? This exposes the body to radiation. What is the purpose?

The dentist (or a more skilled one) should be able to make you a special anti-grinding retainer to wear at night. They make them now if lightweight clear plastic. But it must be properly done, or you will grind more. It will discourage grinding and protect your teeth.
I should add that while the old enlarged nodes in armpits (not palpable) and neck are unchanged, two new enlarged nodal tumors were found on the sides of my abdomen, about 1.5 cm. They are not causing me any problems and do not change my status, according to the doctor, who has treated FL patients for over 30 years. Still low grade indolent, still watch and wait. I would be happier if it hadn’t spread to below the diaphragm, and this depressed me for a bit. But I’ve had to let it go. I have no symptoms, need no treatment, and must get on with life.
Thank you for asking. Still on watch and wait. Hot flashes that sometime worry me—don’t know how to distinguish them from possible lymphoma sweats. ?? Some ups and downs psychologicalky, but manageable. Good luck with the tooth!
