The employee in question suffers from an acoustic neuroma, a benign (non-cancerous) tumor, also known as vestibular schwannoma, which affects the acoustic nerve. The man used his Cell phone professionally about 4 hours a day for 15 years, from 1995 to 2010, reports the newspaper Il Fatto Quotidiano. This is a total exposure to phone waves estimated at 12,600 hours over 15 years.

A causal relationship between excessive use of phones and the development of tumors is not yet established. However, the Court of Appeal of Turin made a decision for the employee to be compensated. They confirmed the verdict handed down by the Court of Ivrea in 2017. Telecom Italia will, therefore, have to pay an annuity to its former employee for this occupational disease.
