Testicular cancer is not a common cancer. There are about 2000 new cases of testicular cancer each year and excellent survival rates of around 98%. But any kind of cancer is a scary possibility. Working around male fertility, a question that comes up often at WaveWall is, as mobile phone radiation causes male infertility, what else can it do? Can phone radiation cause testicular cancer, for instance?
The World Health Organisation says mobile radiation is “possibly carcinogenic to humans.” Which means they believe there’s a chance it could cause cancer in people.
Cancer is caused by mutations in cells that then form tumours and can spread across the body. We know mobile phone radiation damages cells and DNA, which is how it affects fertility.
Sperm is particularly vulnerable to mobile phone radiation because it is constantly developing. It needs very specific conditions to do well. Mobile phones disrupt those conditions. But that doesn’t mean phone radiation causes testicular cancer. Sperm aren’t involved in testicular cancer. Most testicular cancer is “germ cell testicular cancer.” This is cancer of the cells involved in producing the sperm, not the sperm itself.
Cancer Research UK says that, “Testicular cancer is not clearly linked to any preventable risk factors.”
While we are making great strides in combating cancer there is still much we don’t understand about the disease. Opinion is divided on whether phone radiation can cause cancer. One of the major problems is that we don’t have enough long-term data yet.
Based on the potential risk, some men might want an anti-radiation mobile phone case to protect not only their sperm from radiation but potentially their testicles too. All men should check themselves regularly and see a GP if there is any swelling, a lump, or a change in shape or texture.
EMF stands for electromagnetic frequencies or electromagnetic fields and they are very common. EMFs are emitted by all electrical objects – some more than others. But are EMFs dangerous?
EMFs are also referred to as radiation because they include frequencies like X-rays, infrared and visible light. Some of these are harmful, some aren’t. Some, like sunlight, usually aren’t harmful but getting too much – sunburn – can be.
So “are EMFs harmful?” can be a tricky question to answer.
EMFs from your phone, also known as mobile phone radiation, have been found to harm the body by damaging cells and DNA.
Frequently asked questions include
Mobile phone radiation has been shown by many scientific studies to be a factor in male infertility. Some experts described mobile phone radiation as “cooking” sperm.
Sperm are complicated and have a tough job to do. There are lots of things that can go wrong: from sperm that can’t swim to ones that have faulty DNA. Normally their sheer numbers make up for this but sperm counts are dropping all over the world.
One big factor is that EMF waves are harmful to sperm and the increase in mobile phones has caused an increase in infertility, along with other lifestyle changes.
So are EMFs dangerous? They can be and more research is needed on what our mobile phones could be doing to our body, especially with young people. EMFs are harmful to sperm and contribute to male infertility.
Hair loss can be caused by lots of factors but it is always an emotional issue. Our hair is a very noticeable part of our appearance and we use our styles to convey our personality. Having a full head of hair is linked to masculinity and virility. So what happens when that is threatened? As well as the looming threat of male pattern baldness, can phone radiation cause hair loss?
One of the problems with this question is that, with so many phones in the world, it is hard to separate the factors. Most bald men will have a mobile phone. But most non-bald men will also have a mobile phone.
Male pattern baldness sees a receding hairline and a loss of hair around the crown. This is normal and hereditary issue caused by hormones that affects millions of men, increasingly as they get older. This is an age-old issue that cannot be blamed on phone radiation.
A trader who used a phone for many hours a day reported a bald patch where he held his mobile phone against his ear. The doctor who treated him suspected that there was a link between the bald spot and the length of time he spent on his phone and pointed to electromagnetic radiation as the cause.
But could the bald spot have been caused by the heat from the phone, or by the phone damaging the skin as it was held in the same spot for hours every day?
Leading hair loss clinic, The Belgravia Centre, says there is no conclusive evidence that phone radiation affects hair growth.
If you are suffering from sudden hair loss in one particular area, if there are other symptoms such as redness or irritation, your first step should be to see your GP to check if there is a medical reason. There are conditions such as alopecia that affect hair growth and other conditions that hair loss can be a symptom of.
To protect you from phone radiation WaveWall have a range of anti-radiation phone cases, radiation-blocking headphones and other products.
It’s a question that is getting a lot of press and attention at the moment: can phone radiation cause cancer?
There have been some high-profile cases that have raised the question in the minds of the public. The World Health Organisation gave mobile phones a Class 2B rating, which means they assessed them as “possibly carcinogenic to humans”, with carcinogenic meaning cancer-causing.
But is this scaremongering, playing it safe, or something we need to be concerned about?
There are lots of studies and medical research that shows phone radiation passes through the body and damages cells and DNA. There is lots of evidence that shows how this can cause male infertility by damaging sperm. Too many damaged sperm means trouble conceiving, and a possible diagnosis of male infertility.
Could phone radiation damage cells and DNA to cause cancer?
In Italy a court case found a mobile phone responsible for causing a man’s brain tumour. It was a benign tumour but did lead to hearing loss in one ear. The court decided that safety equipment should have been provided for the long hours the man used his phone as part of his job. The ruling was hotly contested by some medical experts and the mobile phone companies.
There is also the often-quoted case of “a woman who developed breast cancer tumours right underneath where she kept her phone kept tucked under her bra strap”. Could it be a horrible coincidence, or did the phone cause it?
The problem is that there is so little research and evidence into the question. There needs to be far more study into the long-term effects of mobile phone radiation. There are too many unanswered questions about phone radiation, including whether it can cause cancer.
Until the possible risks of phone radiation causing cancer is fully understood, you can help protect yourself from harmful mobile phone radiation using WaveWall’s range of anti-radiation mobile phone cases, laptop cases, iPad cases and Airtube headphones.
At WaveWall we know the damage phone radiation can do to your body. Our anti-radiation products are scientifically proven to protect against EMFs and phone radiation. But how far can this damage go? Can phone radiation kill you?
It’s an understandable concern. It’s stirred up by sensationalist news stories and used to sell items with dubious scientific credentials. But is it a real threat?
Part of the problem is that – like anything EMF or mobile phone radiation-related – we just don’t have enough long term data. Mobile phones only started to become household items in the mid to late 90s. The current blanketing of WiFi signals and popularity of smartphones began around 2010. That’s not enough time for all the fallout and repercussions to become clear.
If phone radiation has a long-term effect we don’t know yet. If it takes thirty years to have an effect we don’t know yet – no-one has been around smartphones and WiFi for that long. How might it affect children who have grown up in this environment, once they reach old age? We are a long way from finding out.
Clearly more research needs to be done. Both in the short term and longer-term studies.
In the meantime, it is sensible to take reasonable precautions. Limiting children’s exposure to mobile phones is proven to benefit their development in many ways, not just physically. This step is recommended by many governments and health boards.
We know that mobile phones and the always-on access they provide to social media can cause anxiety in adults. Many people are addicted to checking their mobile phone, which impacts on relationships and quality of life. Also, mobile phones can disrupt our sleep and cause us to work much longer hours.
Many studies have shown a link between mobile phone radiation and male infertility. Sperm is damaged by the mobile phone radiation that passes through the body, leading to male infertility. This trend is happening all over the world, with one in five healthy young men in danger of infertility.
So can phone radiation kill you? The jury is still out, and will be for some time. But there is plenty you can do to protect yourself from phone radiation and the bad effects we definitely know it can have on your body and mind.
It’s great that the danger of mobile phone radiation is getting more coverage and people are becoming more aware. But it also makes the issue trendy, and open to people spreading incorrect information. Like using charms or stickers to protect you. But do cell phone radiation stickers work to shield you from mobile phone radiation?
Mobile phone radiation can’t be stopped by charms or stickers but unfortunately it seems to be a popular choice. This leaves people vulnerable to electromagnetic fields and frequencies, and mobile phone radiation, even though they think they are protected and have paid to be.
Which is a shame because cell phone radiation protection is important and also pretty straightforward.
Manufacturers claim the stickers work by absorbing electromagnetic fields, but the science just doesn’t make sense. Electromagnetic fields don’t work like that. Nor do charms that promise protection.
There is a real, scientifically backed and proven, way to protect yourself from cell phone radiation.
So, cell phone radiation stickers don’t work – what does? Anti radiation phone cases do work.
WaveWall anti-radiation phone cases are independently tested and verified to block 87% of mobile phone radiation.
WaveWall cases work by using metallic threads woven into the fabric of the case. This is a form of Faraday cage, which was invented by Michael Faraday in 1836. It’s a well known scientific principle and used in lots of different technology. The metallic threads or bars block electromagnetic fields.
But the phone can still be used as normal because the Faraday sleeve only covers one side of the phone. The other is free to receive calls, texts and data as normal. But the side against the body blocks the mobile phone radiation from going any further.
Try the WaveWall Universal – a great phone case that also protects you from mobile phone radiation.
You might have heard about all the dangers of electromagnetic fields and mobile phone radiation in causing cancers, tumours and male infertility but still be wondering, do anti radiation phone cases work, really? Are they the answer to protecting you and your family against the harmful effects of mobile phone radiation.
Unlike other solutions anti radiation phone cases really do work and are based on sound, longstanding scientific principles as well as innovative modern technology.
WaveWall’s anti radiation phone cases have been independently tested by an accredited UK testing laboratory applying accepted international standards. This testing proved that WaveWall gives an 87% reduction in radiation exposure – a phenomenal difference.
Anti radiation phone cases work by blocking mobile phone radiation, or EMFs.
Our articles what is EMF radiation? and EMF exposure and you, can give you lots more details on mobile phone radiation and EMFs. You can find many more articles as well as all the scientific and medical research on mobile phone radiation and male infertility.
So how do anti radiation phone cases work?
Metallic fibres in the WaveWall case act as a Faraday cage that blocks electromagnetic fields. The Faraday cage has been around since 1836 and is a very well known scientific principle. An anti radiation phone case is just a small version that shields your body from the phone radiation. A WaveWall case blocks 85% of this radiation from reaching the body, passing through it and damaging cells and DNA.
However, it doesn’t affect how you use your phone at all. The WaveWall shielding is only on one side of the case – the side you keep next to your body. So the phone uses the other side to send messages, receive calls, and stay connected to the network.
WaveWall cases really do work to protect your body from mobile phone radiation, preventing male infertility and other health worries.

Mobile phone radiation keeps our phones working but it also has some pretty serious side effects. More and more people are looking at the effects mobile phones are having on their health. Can phone radiation cause headaches? Is this something to be worried about?
Some people experience an extreme reaction to electromagnetic fields. This can include headaches, migraines, nausea, dizziness and palpitations. These people go to extreme lengths to avoid phone radiation, like insulating their homes or moving to the countryside.
Most people won’t have symptoms that severe. But if you have regular headaches you might want to think about whether your phone is at fault.
EMF – electromagnetic frequencies – like phone radiation are all around. Most household appliances emit EMF. Mobile phones are a bit different because we carry them with us nearly all day, put them to our heads and many people even sleep with them.
The students who did a famous experiment showing the effect of wifi signals on the growth of cress said that they could feel the difference when they slept with their phones. They had trouble sleeping and found it hard to concentrate in class the next day. Keeping a phone under your pillow or next to your bed means that you are within the field of radiation.
In Italy, a man was awarded a landmark judgement in a legal case, that said that his mobile phone was responsible for causing a tumour in his brain. Although it didn’t lead to cancer he did lose the hearing in one ear.
Given some of that evidence, “can phone radiation cause headaches?” is a good question to be asking.
But what can you do about it? You can block phone radiation from reaching your body and your brain, while still using your phone and other electrical devices.
WaveWall’s Universal anti-radiation phone case blocks 85% of mobile phone radiation from reaching your body. It doesn’t affect the use of your phone at all. There’s also an anti-radiation laptop case and iPad case. To give your head and brain extra protection, Airtubes are innovative headphones. Because the top part of the headphone is a hollow tube filled with air – not wires – they stop radiation from travelling to your head.
It’s an important question: does phone radiation kill sperm? With male fertility dropping across the globe it’s important to pay attention to anything that could be having an impact. And scientific studies and medical research is increasingly coming out that says mobile phone radiation is causing male infertility by killing and damaging sperm.
Even when the phone radiation doesn’t kill the sperm it can damage it so badly it can’t fulfil its purpose. Sperm need to be in tip top condition but phone radiation can affect them in various ways.
Sperm viability is, basically, whether sperm are alive are not. They have a tough job and many will die in the pursuit of fertilisation so there needs to be plenty at the start. For a good level of fertility 60% or more of sperm need to be viable.
Sperm motility describes how well the sperm can move. They need to be able to swim forwards strongly. Good levels of fertility depend on lots of this kind of strong swimming sperm. But some sperm can’t move at all, some just a little, and some can move but only in a zig zag or curving shape.
Sperm count is a familiar way of talking about fertility. Fertility is a number’s game so we need lots of sperm in that semen. It’s measured per millilitre and on average there is 20-40 million sperm per millilitre. Under 15 million and the sperm count is officially low.
Testosterone levels are important because when the male hormone is produced, sperm is also produced. So if low levels of testosterone are being made then low levels of sperm will be too.
But how does phone radiation kill sperm? We’ve seen how there are lots of factors that go into making healthy, strong sperm that can get the job done. Mobile phone radiation has been found to disrupt each of those factors.
In fact, some experts published their research and said mobile phone radiation was “cooking” sperm. Being battered by radiation that can damage and kill DNA and cells is seriously bad news for sperm.
Phone radiation is powerful stuff. It allows our little devices to send and receive messages from cell phone towers that can be many miles away. Maintaining this connection to the network requires a lot of effort from our phones. While it does so, what can phone radiation do to you?
Phones emit an electromagnetic field made of phone radiation. It extends about six inches around the phone. Like many other electromagnetic frequencies it can pass through the body. It’s possible that right now multiple electromagnetic frequencies are overlapping with your own body. Phone radiation, wifi signals, television signals and more.
Phone radiation is less like radio waves and more like an X-ray. They are all forms of electromagnetic frequency. But X-rays leave radiation behind when they pass through the body. That’s why their use is carefully restricted. So in the same way, the radiation from mobile phones can damage the body.
Cell phone radiation has been labelled as “possibly carcinogenic” by the World Health Organisation. Which means it could cause cancer in humans. There have been several cases of tumours or cancer thought to have been caused by phone radiation.
Other than cancer and tumours, what can phone radiation do to you? In many studies, phone radiation has been linked to the growing issue of male infertility. The radiation damages cells and DNA – and some very important cells and DNA sit within six inches of where many men keep their phone in their trouser pocket.
Because sperm are constantly developing they are very vulnerable. Phone radiation can cause weak, abnormal sperm that can’t get the job done. Which leads to infertility and trouble conceiving. Some scientists said exposure to mobile phone radiation is like “cooking” sperm.
What can you do about phone radiation? You can shield yourself from phone radiation using an anti-radiation phone case like WaveWall Universal. WaveWall have a range of phone radiation protection that blocks 85% of mobile phone radiation from reaching your body.
