Will I develop cancer from using my cellphone?

I had a discussion with a family member this morning about how I slept on my cellphone by accident.

I admit, my phone has been next to me at night but only for a hours (I wake up in the middle of the night to check my alerts then go back to sleep).

A family member told me I could develop cancer from sleeping with or near my phone. Now I'm anxious about all the times I've had my phon close to me when I slept.

What should I do?

Very very unlikely to happen unless you attach your phone on your head for the rest of your life.
