Cancer is defined as a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to spread to other body parts. In 2018, around 18.1 million new cancer cases were observed with 9.6 million death. Since people are getting diagnosed with cancer, they are looking for the best treatment in their country or abroad.

One of the best abroad treatment countries is Turkey. With its strategic position in the world, Turkey offers both a reliable treatment option with a country having touristic attractions. And we shouldn’t forget the low cost of treatment. Let’s focus on facilities and costs.


The most advanced improvement on this point is PET-CT (Positron Emission Tomography-Computed Tomography). With this equipment, cancerous cells are detected, and we can see whether the treatment is successful or not. Nearly all provinces in Turkey have this treatment option.

Another important cancer treatment method is radiotherapy. With this method, the cancerous area is radiated, and the tumour is eliminated, and the regular tissues are protected. With new devices and methods, the disease can be controlled, the damage being exposed to the tissues is decreased, and the patient comfort is highly increased. Turkey has adapted itself to rapidly changing improvement in the cancer treatment industry, and nearly all oncology facilities have these state-of-the-art medical cancer treatment devices.

Another method for cancer treatment is brachytherapy. We can perform 3D conformal brachytherapy with the Radiation Oncology. We place the resources and applicators and take images via computerised tomography and then send it to the system. In this way, the accuracy of the application is verified, and any issue is corrected before the treatment. After obtaining 3D images and making necessary calculations, we start the treatment of the patient. With this method, the chances of missing the tumour are eliminated.


Prices for cancer treatment are lower than in other countries. Prices may change depending on the cancer facility you choose. On the other hand, average prices are as follows: computed tomography from $800, oncological consultation from $200, bone marrow transplantation from $120 thousand.

Even though such prices are much lower than the cost of treatment in Europe and the US, the quality of the service is the same.
