Below is some very fresh 2013 info regarding left-sided brain and neck tumors in Interventional physicians:

Brain and Neck Tumors Among Physicians Performing Interventional Procedures – American Journal of Cardiology, Feb 2013
http://www.ajconline.org/article/S0002-9149(13)00346-9/abstract

1. “The present report documented brain and neck tumors occurring in 31 physicians: 23 interventional cardiologists, 2 electrophysiologists, and 6 interventional radiologists. All physicians had worked for prolonged periods (latency period 12 to 32 years, mean 23.5 ± 5.9) in active interventional practice with exposure to ionizing radiation in the catheterization laboratory.”

Also, “Given that the brain is relatively unprotected and the left side of the head is known to be more exposed to radiation than the right, these findings of disproportionate reports of left-sided tumors suggest the possibility of a causal relation to occupational radiation exposure. Study published in American Journal may link occupational radiation exposure to brain tumors – Enformable Nuclear News, March 2013
http://enformable.com/2013/03/study-published-in-american-journal-may-link-occupational-radiation-exposure-to-brain-tumors/

2. “Lloyd W. Klein, MD, and Professor of Medicine at Rush Medical College in Chicago said, “…Although the paper in itself does not prove anything other than identifying a cluster of cases, when you put it together with many other studies on occupational hazards, they tell a very startling story. So, not only is this study telling you there is a clustering and there is a hypothesis to suggest why, but the sidedness strongly supports that hypothesis. So I think this is a very scary, concerning and troubling paper that everyone in health care should be talking about it. Yet the silence will be deafening.“
