Abstract: Worldwide, mobile phone usage has been increased dramatically which could affect the health of the people. The mobile phone is a modern-day invention, which has managed to reach many parts of the world enabling telecommunications across areas where it was not possible before. To evaluate the knowledge, frequency and health hazards of mobile phone usage among the young and aged population. A total of 100 people including young, adult and aged population were subjected to a list of standard and approved questions based on knowledge, frequency and health hazards of mobile phone usage. The data was collected and statistically analysed. Pie chart was plotted. On analysis out of 100 participants 45.0% of them used phones most oftenly, 36.0% of them used mobile phones for some unknown reasons, 31.0% of them used mobile phones for 5 - 6 Hrs. From the survey 41.0% of them kept their mobile phones in a pants pocket. From the collected data 35.0% of the participants used both right and left hand for speaking on call. 43.0% of them didn't have any kind of pain or burning sensation in their eyes. 51.0% of them didn't know about the SAR value. 55.0% of them didn't know the safe value of SAR emitted from their mobile phones. 33.0% of them voted for 1.6 watt/Kg. 33.0% of them felt eye burning as a common symptom.
