How phones can actually cause cancer

The debate whether cell phone use can cause cancer and other tumors has been ranging for some time now.

Though medical experts worldwide differ on this, some like Ruchira Misra are convinced of the effects of prolonged cell-phone usage.

Dr. Misra, a consultant Paediatric Hematologist and Oncologist at Fortis Memorial Research Institute in India, believes that prolonged use of mobile phones exposes the user to radio frequency radiation which can cause cancer.

“There are not enough studies to prove this; but we have seen that there is radiation exposure from the batteries that can cause cancer, and so should not be held close,” said Misra.

The doctor wrote to the the family of a 15-year-old girl fighting for her life for the past three years with T cell Rich B cell Lymphoma, saying the condition was as a result of exposure to cell phone radiation.

Merlyn Adhiambo’s family believes their daughter’s condition is as a result of side effects of mobile phone use.

“The most devastating thing is that Merlyn was innocently exposed to cell phone radiation throughout the year 2012 when she shared her bed with my teenage cousin who used to talk on her cellphone throughout the night on free promotion, and was oblivious that high resistance when cellphone are used under blanket cover, causes radiation beyond acceptable range,” said the father, John Owiti.

Ms Adhiambo, who is admitted at Fortis Hospital, had been responding well to treatment after undergoing three operations, before her condition started to worsen.

The family said the girl now requires urgent bone marrow transplant at a cost of Sh10 million.

“Adhiambo began to show signs of loss of concentration in school in 2013 while in Standard Seven,” Owiti recalled.

She later developed a unique cough and a very tiny swelling near the neck. Medical check-ups involving blood tests, ultra sound and fine needle aspiration showed no diagnosis for the problem.

She would later start complaining of a throbbing pain at the right side of her neck and a cardiovascular surgeon recommended a CT scan.

The results revealed that the swelling was pressing on her veins, thus restricting blood flow from the brain to other body organs. Surgery was done and a big neck mass removed.

She was put on antibiotics for one week, pending a pathology report.

“When the final report was received in August 2014, it had not pinpointed a particular diagnosis and apart from ruling out any malignancy, the report had a suspicion of possible chronic viral infection,” Owiti said.
