Laura, that's not a known breast cancer risk. However, would it be possible to carry it elsewhere? I'm not so sure I'd want to be quite so intimate with something that's searching for satellite signals all day! Give some thought to your purse, pants with a pocket, or some other option, maybe? - PJH
no you can because it is not linking any radashion and it douse make ur hart a lot faster beat than can couse a hart problems
While constant use of cell phones has been POSSIBLY linked to brain cancer, there's no evidence linking them to breast cancer - yet. But why take the chance? PJH
The jury is still out as to whether long-term, intense cell phone use can lead to brain tumours. Presumably, you are not talking on your phone when it's in your bra (oh, the contortions!) so the risk for cancer causing emissions is probably even lower.
Still, I have to admit that I carry my phone in my bag and not on my person (I am also not a heavy cell phone user) because I just feel more at ease doing so.
And can it really be all that comfortable to carry your cell phone around in your bra?
Take good care-
yes it is comfortable to carry your cell phone in your bra but from what im hearin i dont want to put it back in there.....so ima try and not put my phone in my bra again.....im only 17 aboutto be 18 and i usually put my phone in my bra.....
I have a question.....If ive been keeping my cell phone in my bra since i was like 13 til now n im 17.....Is it possible that i may get breast cancer?
All of us who are women might get breast cancer. And since researchers don't know what causes it, everything's open to question. The answer to your question is impossible to give; there's currently reseach going on regarding the connection (if any) between cell phone usage and cancer, though not specifically from carrying a phone in your bra. Nevertheless, best to find a new place to store it, OK? Good luck - PJH
Traci, thanks for your input here. I hope your daughter is doing well - what an unexpected ordeal, at her age...
No one knows what causes breast cancer. There are certain factors that increase risk - age, family history, obesity, excessive alcohol use - but there's no direct cause/effect for breast cancer that researchers have discovered. Only about 15% of women diagnosed with breast cancer have any family history, and/or carry a mutant gene that increases risk; for the rest of us - it's just plain random.
Did her cell phone cause your daughter's cancer? There's no scientific evidence that this is true. However, researchers are always identifying new factors that can increase risk; maybe someday, we'll all be advised to carry our cell phones off our bodies. In the meantime, each of us should do use our best judgement to do what we can to minimize risk.
Thanks again for posting. PJH
I would like to whole heartedly agree. I kept my ipod in the left side of my bra for 4 - 6 hours a day for 3 years. I love music & listened to pod casts on a regular basis. I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer at the age of 34 in 2010. I dont have a family history & I was tested for the gene - negative. Here's the real kicker...my tumor was EXACTLY where I kept my ipod & the tumor itself was horizontally positioned on my upper left breast right where I slipped it in my bra day after day! The tumor was 4 centimeters long & 1/2 wide...When I held my ipod to my chest after diagnosis the ipod covered the legnth of the tumor. My doctors said the tumor presented itself in the shape of a banana slug. Google banana slug & imagine an ipod covering it...scary! I warn all my friends about this risk. I absolutely KNOW that the ipod caused my breast cancer.
Please do not carry it in your bra. I have no history of Breast Cancer in my family and the left side of my bra is where i use to carry my cell!!! I ended up with stage 4 Breast Cancer on the lef side and had my Chemo and now i have alot of other health issues due to the Chemo. Please get a case to carry it in ok. Noone can decide where i got my Cancer from so.Take Care ok and PLEASE take my advice ok. Love : Pam
You are so so welcome!!! I just had the other breast removed not due to having the cellphone there lol but they found more cysts so i was not going to take the chance. Yes PLEASE find somewhere else to carry it. I am glad i could help you a bit :) Take Care *hugs*
I have carried my cell phone in my bra for @ two years, left side only. last week i had a black spot develope where my cell phone would rest on and it is growing rapidly! i have a appt tomorrow to have it looked at and i pray that it is not related to carring my phone there. i will NEVER carry it in my bra again, its not worth the risk!
Any thing that emits radiation of any kind should be approached with caution by everybody. As a survivor, I can tell you that I would NEVER carry my cell phone in my bra.
Wow I did that all the time. I am surprised that others do it as well. I can't wait to hear the answer
Don't carry your phone in your bra.
As a health care professional, I hear that the phones we use in the hospital, which is like a cell phone, to be alert to brain cancers. I have heard this on television, articles, etc.
of course not
I dont know the answers to the latest research- that is why I am responding to this question from the healthcentral newsletter I just received.
i say yes it could happen.
not sure if you could or not
I don't think you can.
I always thought that the answer was NO..until my moms boyfriend got breast cancer.Of course he is a guy, so he doesnt have a bra to carry it in lol..but he always put his phone in his shirt pocket. All his shirts have a pocket on the upper left side..and thats excactly where he got the cancer. He has carried it there since A LONG TIME!! as long as i can remember, and now he has to deal with breast cancer. I would suggest that just in case..u find another place for your cell phone.
Anna, there's no proof at this point that carrying your cell phone in your bra might cause breast cancer. But there's some proof that using a cell phone a lot can cause brain cancer. So, put 2 + 2 together, and it seems not that outlandish that a cell could cause breast cancer, too... So I agree, best to stow it elsewhere! PJH
