Every year in Turkey and Istanbul, about 9,000 people are diagnosed with a primary brain tumor. They account for 5% of all cancers. Major epidemiological studies have shown that brain tumours have been increasing for several decades, but it is not clear why.

In terms of mobile phone use, children would be more exposed to brain tumours than adults.
Consult your doctor if you suffer from symptoms like persistent and intense headaches that are accompanied by nausea and vision problems.
In Turkey and Istanbul, we usually use two kinds of imaging tests which are:
Pet-Scan, that proves its efficiency in detecting 85% of tumours, is a useful tool which permits the doctors to confirm the presence, position, and size of the tumours.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is used to identify tumors that would not have been detected in the Pet scan. In practice, the MRI procedure is similar to that of the scanner, but it implements an electromagnetic field instead of radiation.
