There has been research and increasing media attention in respect of mobile phones as a cause of brain cancer in recent years. The purpose of the current report is to provide an assessment of the issue. The report considers the principle hierarchy of medical evidence in accordance with formal evidence based medicine (EBM) guidelines.
