Cancer is a 21st century disease and also the second leading cause of death in the world. However, cancer can be defeated! Detected at an early stage and treated by oncologists with experience and modern technology, cancer is successfully cured.

Oncology is one of the specialized areas of Turkish medicine. 40% of the country’s foreign patients are people who came to treat cancer.

Hospitals in Turkey, renowned for their oncology departments, are considered some of the best cancer treatment centers in the world. They have specialized departments for medical oncology, surgical oncology, oncological radiology, stem cell and bone marrow transplantation.

Due to the outstanding results obtained in the treatment of various forms of cancer, in recent years, the number of patients who underwent treatment, surgery or cancer control in Turkey has increased significantly.

An important advantage of hospitals in Turkey is the accurate diagnosis made with high-performance equipment. Accurate determination of the condition, shape and stage is important for establishing effective treatment. It is very important to know that early diagnosis of cancer greatly increases the chances of a cure.

The first step towards correct cancer treatment has been taken with radiological diagnostic methods. This is important when deciding which treatment to follow for a patient. Hospitals in Turkey have state-of-the-art techniques, cutting edge technology and radiology specialists to make the correct diagnosis.

Cancer Treatment In The Clinic

The Department of Oncology employs world-class specialists who use the latest techniques and developments in the field of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery and cell therapy. We specialize in diseases such as:

  • Breast cancer
  • Cancers of the gastrointestinal tract
  • Tumors of bones and soft tissues
  • Lung cancer
  • Tumors of the genitourinary system
  • Tumors of the head and neck
  • Brain tumors


Chemotherapy treatment is often combined with surgery, especially in cases where the tumor is found at a later stage, and malignant cells are highly sensitive to the effects of chemotherapy drugs.

Depending on the form, location and stage of the cancer, cytostatics can be prescribed:

  • before surgery to reduce the tumor volume and simplify the problem being solved (neoadjuvant treatment);
  • after surgery to kill remaining cancer cells (adjuvant therapy).
  • Hormonal drugs are used to prevent possible recurrence of breast cancer if the disease is diagnosed early or they are used to control the progression of metastatic disease, especially in patients with bone metastases or limited organ metastases.
  • Immunotherapy, treatment of the immune system. Substances produced naturally by the system are used to identify and destroy cancer cells by boosting the body’s immunity.
