Question Most common cancer caused by radiation?

Does anyone know if it is CML or papillary thyroid cancer? I think I remember Goljan said it was CML but in first aid it only mentions papillary thyroid cancer being caused by radiation. thanks

I've never heard about CML being caused by radiation injury. Papillary carcinoma of the thyroid gland, on the other hand, is strongly associated with this type of injury.
