Objective: The aim of our study was to evaluate possible effects of chronic exposure to 900 - 1900 MHz radiations emitted from 2G cell phone on the testis of mice at the histological level. Methods: Mice were exposed to 2G ultra-high frequency radiation, 48 minutes per day for a period of 30 to 180 days. The amount of electromagnetic field (EMF) exposed was calculated by the radiation frequency meter. The sham control mice were exposed to similar conditions without 2G exposure. Each animals weight was recorded before sacrifice. Three animals each were sacrificed at the end of 30, 60, 90, 120, 150 and 180 days of exposure in the experimental group after 24 hours of last exposure. Same numbers of control animals were sacrificed on similar period. We collected blood samples to measure plasma testosterone. We measured and analyzed the size, weight and volume of the testis. Testis sections were analyzed under the light microscope for structural changes. Results: In 2G exposed group animal weight was lower at first, second and fourth month (p value 0.05). The mean testis weight of 2G exposed mice was significantly reduced in all months except fourth month (p value
