Another small study that proves nothing

This study suggests that people have used a mobile phone for a decade may increase their risk of an unusual, benign tumour, by 3.9 times. These tumours affect 1 in 100,000 people - and the increase risk is only in the ear you use for the phone. So even on the surface, such a study doesn't suggest a significant health concern. But all such a study can actually tell us is that there a handful more cases than expected in a small group of people.
