Usually, cancer is treated with radiation or chemotherapy, but experts said the latest technology on the medical market is said to cure one rare form of brain cancer.

Dr. Christine Ince of Rapides Regional Hematology Oncology Cancer Center in Alexandria, Lousiana said a highly aggressive form of brain cancer has been detected. It's called glicolastoma multiforme, a high-grade brain cancer found in patients in places such as Cenla, Louisiana.

Back in 2007, Ince and her colleagues performed a study on brain cancer patients in the surrounding parishes. Experts said the connection of magnetic waves from cell phones to brain cancer has not been proven, and there is still no definite cause of this type of cancer.
