What is important to know about radiotherapy?

  • The latest generation radiotherapy devices are the most accurate and safe. They are equipped with a 3D imaging system that delivers the radiation beam with an accuracy of 0.5 mm, so the impact on healthy tissue is minimal. For comparison, the accuracy of irradiation using old installations is a few cm.
  • The newer the equipment, the higher the effectiveness of radiation therapy. Devices of 2003-2008 were installed in domestic clinics, 2013-2018 in foreign ones.
  • Irradiation on the device of the latest generation will pass quickly. 1 session takes 10-15 minutes. For comparison, radiotherapy with older devices lasts 30-60 minutes.
  • The cost of radiation therapy abroad is not always higher. The price of radiation therapy on a linear accelerator of the latest generation in a foreign clinic can be the same as with the help of an old one in a domestic hospital.

The directory lists the best clinics for radiation therapy. The rating is based on the choice of our patients. Leave a request on the website so that a Bookimed coordinating doctor will contact you at a convenient time for you. He will answer your questions, tell you about the features of the procedure, guide you on the cost of treatment and help you choose the best medical center for your case.

They didn’t warn that some of the tests were done on an empty stomach! They told us to take replacement shoes for the treadmill, this is written in the preparation instructions, the two of us brought replacement shoes, because of which we bought luggage, in fact - on the path we were wearing ordinary street sneakers! Queues!!! There were queues all around, we waited for a therapist for more than an hour, for an ophthalmologist for more than 40 minutes, a lot of time was spent waiting at the door, although we had a VIP check-in package! Doctors without coats, in jeans, sweaters, in which they walk down the street! The cardiologist was talking on a mobile phone during an ultrasound of the heart! The gynecologist did not give any recommendations, spent 1 minute on the examination, there was no answer to the questions, everything was very superficial, the doctors did not devote time, despite the fact that people flew from another country specifically for this! But the Turks sit for an hour in the office for consultations! Like a conveyor belt and formal! A number of deviations were identified - no recommendations, what is this for? How to look for the cause and eliminate it? Go take your vitamins - a very unprofessional approach! The clinic coordinator also wrote strange messages in response to my complaint that the cardiologist was talking on his mobile phone during the ultrasound and was not wearing a gown - like this is normal for them, but we have never seen this anywhere else! The price for some tests was announced at the reception twice as much, I had to find out on the spot and write to everyone about this - why was the price announced the same, but in fact it is 2 times different?! There are many nuances, just like for a VIP check-in. You can just get tested everywhere and cheaper, in this clinic there is no individual approach and the doctors don’t care - it’s noticeable, we won’t come to this place again.

The clinic is good. Doctors too, but the prices are very expensive. From the beginning, the coordinator and translator do not say that they have service packages. I found out about this by accident. Immediately upon payment, ask for a receipt and you will know exactly what and how much you have to pay for. On my first visit, it was the translator who told the cashier a different amount, but it turned out that the amount there was much less. It was precisely because of this that I asked Bookimed to change both the translator and the coordinator. Be carefull. I am very grateful to the Bookimed company, they are experts in their field, especially Marina, I can write to her at any time, she will gladly answer and help me. It was she who brought me to this clinic and she, through representatives, found out how much I appreciated the treatment. Although this was the coordinator's job. The coordinator was not there to help or pick up the phone at all and didn’t even answer lately. Apparently I didn’t like the fact that I already understood everything perfectly well. I don’t know the price of finding out this is something secret, I don’t know the permanent answer. They know everything very well and it has turned into a business. Pay the money and immediately get a check from the financial department. Also, if you have dollars, ask for the exchange rate in lira. Their rate in the database is different.

Many thanks to Bookimed for the opportunity to meet different specialists and clinics in Turkey, compare, read reviews, and study information in an understandable language. It’s hard to even imagine how much time, financial and professional costs it took for the creators to make the information so accessible and complete for the patient. Thank you for your work and choosing such a useful niche as this! It is so important for the patient to be able to communicate with the manager at any time: to talk, consult, discuss personal issues and possible risks. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Before finding you, I had experience communicating with two organizations that provide services in the field of medical tourism, but unfortunately, commerce and the desire to sell specific specialists without options is alarming and does not inspire confidence at all. On the other hand, I’m even glad that I had such a short communication experience, especially since I was able to evaluate the capabilities of Bookimed! I understand that for the reader my review may be similar to an ode of praise, but as they say, “you can’t erase words from a song.”))) Therefore, I can only continue to talk about how it was in my specific case. Thanks to the Khizar clinic for a luxurious spacious room with floor-to-ceiling windows, an additional sofa for visitors, as well as delicious meals three times a day. It would seem difficult to surprise us with high-quality Turkish service in a hotel, but when your stay in the clinic is exactly the same as in a hotel, it is much more valuable at a time when you are absolutely alone in a foreign country and your physical capabilities are temporarily limited. Everything was thought out to the smallest detail: it so happened that I arrived for the operation unaccompanied, with a small backpack. This was extremely important for me: everything I could need was provided or was already available in my favorite room opposite the reception. The operation was scheduled for the afternoon, so the most difficult time was at night. The nurse who was on night duty did a tremendous job and until 6 am did everything as required according to the protocol after the operation. Yes, you can say, how could it be otherwise, you paid the money and it should be so, but you and I know very well that no one has canceled the human factor, and patients in this state after surgery cannot always read carefully in English doctor's recommendation language. Therefore, I send rays of love to this Great Man!!! Every 40 minutes He applied cold compresses, fed me even at night, and then took me for a walk along the long corridor of the clinic. This is an invaluable experience for me, not only because it is important for rehabilitation and health, but also for my personal faith in people. Low bow to the doctor for his professionalism, ability to listen to the patient and a high-quality operation. I would also like to thank Gulshirin Beshimova for the opportunity to make my stay in Turkey as comfortable as possible. Just as theater begins with a coat rack, so in my case Istanbul greeted me with a friendly smile from the driver and a luxurious car. It is impossible not to mention Alpay. I’ve been driving for 20 years, but I’ve never seen anyone pay such attention to the car and the passengers sitting in the back seat: TV, music from all over the world, water of different temperatures, drinks, napkins, a footrest for comfortable feet, and even a fresh bouquet of herbs to scent the salon! My applause!!! Bookimed! Türkiye! You have won me over! What a pity that I didn’t know before that everything could be like this! She curtsied. Your Eva❤️

When they learned what was needed in the clinic, they didn’t even know where to run and whom to contact. Coordinators helped to select a clinic. They gave us a doctor. Everything went great, the doctor is a true professional.  Separately, I want to note the attitude to patients. We were met at the airport, brought to the clinic and there was already a translator waiting. Literally "by the hand" we were taken to the doctors, everyone translated. Then they provided a taxi to the hotel.   During the operation, the ward was provided for two people - for the patient and the attendant; both of them were included in the cost of the operation.   After surgery, the doctor held a consultation, making sure that you can fly back. And only then answered questions remotely that arose.  Clinic definitely recommend

FAQ about Radiotherapy in Turkey

What is the essence of radiation therapy and why is it performed?

The main task of radiation therapy (radiotherapy) is to destroy cancer cells. This is due to exposure to radiation, which destroys their DNA.

The location of the tumor and the stage of the disease affect the goal of radiation therapy. Depending on this, the following types of procedures are distinguished:

  • Therapeutic. As the only method of treatment, radiation therapy is used:
    • with neoplasms that are difficult to access for surgery;
    • in the early stages of some types of cancer;
    • in oncohematological diseases, when it is necessary to irradiate the entire body.
  • Neoadjuvant is preoperative radiation. Doctors perform it to reduce the neoplasm and preserve tissues as much as possible during the operation.
  • Adjuvant - postoperative therapy. Destroys metastases (secondary tumors) and cancer cells that remained after the intervention in the area of the removed neoplasm.
  • Intraoperative - in some cases, replaces adjuvant radiotherapy. Doctors perform it during surgery after removing the visible part of the tumor to destroy the remaining cancer cells.
  • Palliative - indicated for patients with large inoperable neoplasms in the advanced stages of cancer to relieve symptoms.

What determines the cost of radiation therapy?

Factors that affect the cost of radiotherapy:

  • Tumor localization. The price will be higher if the tumor is located near large vessels or nerves and requires special accuracy and complexity of beam adjustment.
  • Dose, number of irradiated zones and sessions. The more of them, the higher the price of radiotherapy.
  • Selected country and clinic. The cost of radiotherapy in different countries can vary several times. For example, 1 course in Turkey costs from $3,068, and in Spain - from $9,371. This is due to the difference in pricing policies for medical services in states. Prices for radiation for cancer in different hospitals in the same country depend on the type of facility (private/public) and class
  • Additional medical services. These include the cost of tickets to the selected country, transfer from / to the airport, translation services, accommodation. In some clinics, the services of a Russian-speaking coordinator, translator, transfer and accommodation are included in the cost of treatment. Check with the Bookimed coordinating doctor when choosing a medical center.

How much does a course of radiation therapy cost?

Where can I read reviews of radiotherapy?

You can read the reviews about radiotherapy left by Bookimed patients in the clinic cards on this page. Here is one of them. He was left by a woman whose aunt was undergoing radiation therapy at the Solingen clinic in Germany.

Good afternoon everyone! The bookimed company helped a lot in solving the terrible misfortune that happened in my family - this is cancer, namely the consultant Koval Ivan, gave hope for my aunt's recovery. A few words about how bookimed advised us with the hospital: we submitted an application with a specific problem, and on the same day consultant Ivan called us back, exactly one day later we were offered three options for hospitals in Europe with a full description of doctors and the cost of treatment. A week later, we were already in Germany for an appointment with Professor Dr. Hensch, the consultation was held at a very high level. Now my aunt is being treated and I am sure that the treatment will be successful.)) I think my aunt will tell you in more detail after she has fully recovered. Personally, on behalf of myself and all of my family, I want to say a HUGE thank you to Bookimed and Ivan for the quality work.


What do Bookimed patients look for when choosing a clinic?

When choosing a medical center for radiation therapy, you need to pay attention to:

  • Year of manufacture of the device. The newer the unit, the more accurate, effective and safer the radiotherapy will be. Therefore, choose a clinic that uses units no older than 2013.
  • Qualified radiation oncologist. Leading experts in this field have at least 15 years of practical experience. It is important that he has regular fellowships in other countries (eg USA) and is a member of international organizations such as the American Society of Radiation Oncology ( ASTRO ) and the European Association for Radiation Therapy and Oncology ( ESTRO ).

What are the types of radiation therapy?

Depending on the method of irradiation, the following types of procedures are distinguished:

Remote (external) radiation therapy

Doctors irradiate the tumor using a special device - a linear accelerator, which is located at a distance from the patient and produces radiation beams.

The Cancer Research UK charitable organization distinguishes the following types of remote radiotherapy:

  • 3D-conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT) - the device creates a three-dimensional model of the neoplasm and acts on it from different angles;
  • Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) - allows you to accurately calculate the doses of radiation required for each of the areas of the tumor, and adjust the beam to the shape of the tumor.
  • Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) – During the procedure, the machine takes CT scans of the tumor. Thanks to this, the doctor can correct the position of the patient's body and accurately direct the radiation beam to the neoplasm.
  • Hypofractional stereotactic radiotherapy (SBRT) is an exposure of a neoplasm to a high dose of radiation. The procedure is only indicated for certain forms of cancer (eg, liver, lung, spine).
  • Proton beam therapy - during such treatment, the destruction of cancer cells occurs due to a beam of protons. The radiation dose is lower than with other types of radiotherapy.

Contact radiation therapy (brachytherapy)

Doctors place a source of radiation (needles, capsules, seeds) inside or near the tumor. The substance affects the neoplasm locally and does not harm the body as a whole.

Radionuclide therapy

The patient takes an oral or intravenous drug with radiation that accumulates in malignant cells. Radionuclide methods of irradiation include radioiodine therapy.

How is radiation therapy performed?

external beam radiation therapy

This is a painless procedure that does not require anesthesia. Moreover, if the patient is a child, doctors use special sedatives that calm him down and allow him to lie still during the irradiation session.

During the procedure, the patient is on a special couch. His body is given the necessary position and fixed to avoid displacement. If necessary, also fix the head with a special mesh.


It is performed under local or general anesthesia. The doctor places radioactive grains into the organ with special needles. He controls the course of the procedure using ultrasound.

Radioiodine therapy

Under the supervision of a doctor, the patient takes a capsule with an individual dose of radioiodine , which is selected according to the results of the examination. The radionuclide does not harm the patient's body, but may affect the health of others. Therefore, for 3-7 days he remains in an individual ward with a special ventilation system.

What side effects and complications can occur after irradiation?

After remote radiation therapy, the patient may experience systemic complications associated with the general condition, and local ones in the area in which the radiotherapy took place.





Fragility of blood vessels

Violation of hematopoiesis

Small focal hemorrhages

Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea

Ulceration of the irradiated surface

Hair loss, brittle nails

How long does treatment last at Bookimed partner clinics?

The mode of radiation therapy depends on its type:

  • Duration of 1 session of remote radiation therapy is 10-45 minutes. The course takes, on average, 2 weeks (5 procedures each). The number of courses is individual for each patient. Doctors determine the need for hospitalization according to the general state of health. In some cases, a single irradiation of the tumor (radiosurgery) is indicated.
  • Brachytherapy takes 1.5 hours, hospitalization after it - 2 days.
  • After taking radioactive iodine, the patient stays in the clinic for an average of 7 days.
