In brief: No real answer

No on knows what really causes malignant brain tumors.
There are clearly genetics which can be part of the story. There are probably also linkages to environmental exposures, etc....But not have been teased out. There's been a lot of stories about cell phone use....But that has never really been shown to be linked to tumors - we haven't seen a dramatic increase over the alst 20 years.
