Prevention of Astrocytoma

Because the exact cause is unknown, there are no prevention guidelines for Astrocytoma. Electromagnetic waves released by high-voltage cables or even cell phones have been linked to an increased risk of brain cancers ​1,2​. This electromagnetic waves notion has yet to be scientifically validated to be linked with causing Astrocytoma.
