Brief Answer:
Hello dear. Till date there is no conclusive evidence.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. Welcome to HCM. I appreciate your concern regarding the use of cell phones and cancer. Various studies have studies the relationship between brain cancers and cell phone use and till date there is still no conclusive evidence that cellphone use causes brain cancers.
We will have to wait for another say, 10 to 20 years to see the results of long term cell phone use.
As of now answer is negative.
Thanks and regards
