21 y/o male , unnecessary CT scan

User Profile
I am a 21 y/o male who recently had an unnecessary CT sinus/maxillofacial scan for a broken nose. I was not explained the risks of a CT scan. I was wondering if I have done serious damage to my brain/thyroid and whether or not I need to have regular check ups now to see if there is a chance I have developed cancer from this scan. Thank you.
