Launching the 333 page report, which reviews hundreds of studies, group chairman Professor Anthony Swerdlow said: "I think there's a need to keep a watch on national cancer trends in relation to this, particularly with brain tumours.
"So far brain tumour rates are not rising in the sorts of age groups who have had exposure for 10, 15 years.
"But if this is something that takes 15, 20 years or more to show up ... we need to keep watch over rates just in case."

Researchers running cohort studies - projects following individuals' health over their lifetimes - also needed to investigate the matter to see if heavy users of mobile phones tended to develop brain tumours more than others, said Prof Swerdlow, an epidemiologist at the Institute of Cancer Reseach.
The review found no evidence that radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic fields caused by wi-fi - now widespread in schools, homes and the workplace - caused harmful effects, or could even be detected by those who claimed to be sensitive to it.
Neither did it find any evidence that mobile phone mast transmitters caused health problems.
