There is no scientific evidence that provides a definite answer to that question. Along with many organizations worldwide, we recommend caution in cell phone use. More research is needed before we know for sure if using cell phones causes cancer.

CDC Retracts its Precautionary Health Warning about Cell Phone Radiation
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a precautionary health warning about cell phone radiation on June 9, 2014 and retracted the warning ten weeks later.
Joel M. Moskowitz, Ph.D., PRLog - Aug. 20, 2014 - BERKELEY, Calif. -- On June 9th of this year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revised the three-year old “Frequently Asked Questions about Cell Phones and Your Health,” on its web site.
A week ago we issued a press release commending CDC for advising the public about the need for caution regarding cell phone radiation exposure, especially among children (“CDC Issues Precautionary Health Warnings about Cell Phone Radiation”; 8/13/2014; http://www.prlog.org/12359483).
CDC’s new precautionary warning policy was consistent with the policies of more than a dozen national health and radiation safety agencies in developed nations around the world.
Following our press release, Microwave News published a report about this important new policy development in the U.S. (“CDC Calls for Caution on Cell Phones”; 8/16/2014; http://microwavenews.com/news-center/cdc-endorses-precaution).
Today, the CDC updated the FAQs and removed the precautionary advice it published ten weeks earlier.
Approximately 100 experts on electromagnetic radiation and health have signed declarations that were submitted to the FCC calling for precaution. It’s likely these experts would unanimously support CDC’s precautionary warning (“FCC: 98 Scientific Experts Demand Stronger Regulation of Cellphone Radiation; 8/4/2014; http://www.prlog.org/12355167).
Knowing how much administrative oversight CDC typically provides its media relations unit, we doubt that the CDC’s new policy statements were simply a mistake. What influenced CDC to retract its June 9th policy statements on cell phone use?
Following are the responses that CDC altered to three of the questions in its cell phone FAQs (http://www.cdc.gov/nceh/radiation/cell_phones._FAQ.html)
