Brief Answer: Thank you for posting your query. Detailed Answer: MRI scans are safe and do not increase the risk of cancer. This is because there is no radiation exposure from MRI (unlike CT scans, which poses radiation hazard, and increases the risk of cancer). Therefore, one can have unlimited number of MRI scans. I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.
