Hello,

Depending on the stage of the tumor, the nuclear physician will explain to you rather there are more benefits from a second dose or more harm. Without knowing the stage we can not say how dangerous it may be.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Mirjeta Guni, Endocrinologist
