In brief: Not that we know

The radiation energy from a cell tower is very low unless you are on the tower at the antenna.
The current controversy is whether cell phone itself can cause brain malignancy since they are held close to your head while they are being used. The jury is still out on the question but prudence suggests you use your cell phone on speaker or use a blue tooth ear piece which generates lower radio ener.

In brief: I say "no"

This has been under study for thirty years with zero good science to support it.
The studies claiming a link are obvious junk -- retrospective studies that strongly invite recall bias. The wavelengths involved aren't the ones that damage molecules, which must happen to cause cancer. Enough's enough. Stop being frightened and enjoy the advantages of technology.

In brief: Radiation

So many things around us are producing radiation that it is a genuine concern for role of them in carcinogenesis.
It is possible but more studies need to be done in this area.
