Should I talk to my doctor about radon poisoning?

Unfortunately, the only way a doctor can tell if you've been harmed by radon poisoning is when it's too late and the radon has already caused excessive damage. If you're concerned about radon poisoning, the best thing to do would be to get your home, workplace, and other common living spaces tested for their radon levels. This way, you can be aware of the amounts of radon around you and know if a change of environment would be advisable.
