Trace elements have had a recognized role in clinical medicine for many years. It has been suggested that the concentrations of trace elements present in the human body may change depending on disease formed in tissue such as cancer. Multi-element analysis of tissue samples by INAA is an adequate method to define the role of trace elements in formation of these diseases. In this study, the normal and malignant tissue samples of breast, throat and large intestines taken from 4 female and 3 male patients having the same and/or different cancer types were collected and the concentrations of Cs, K, Se, Te and Zn were investigated by using INAA method. The concentration levels obtained for these elements were significantly high in the malignant tissues compared to the normal ones.
