All communication networks (transceiving antennas on telecom masts included) use radio waves to communicate (to transmit and receive signals). Any network on radio waves can not cause any serious health effect on human.  Read here https://www.positivenaija.com/forum/topic/5g-network-and-diseases/

Living very close to active telecom masts therefore can not cause cancer but it adviced not to be too close to the masts because of the following other health related reasons:

- carbon emission from diesel generator powering the masts

- noise disturbance from the power generator
