Amaç: Bitkiler ve mantarlar, tamamlayıcı veya koruyucu olarak basit hastalıklarda kullanıldığı gibi kanser gibi tedavisi ağır olan hastalıklarda da yaygın olarak kullanılmaktadır. Kanser hastaları arasında bitki ve mantar kullanımını belirlemek amacıyla İstanbul Üniversitesi Onkoloji Enstitüsü’nde polikliniklerde tedavi gören 100 kanser hastası ile bir anket çalışması yapılmıştır. Gereç ve Yöntem: Anketler hastalarla yüz yüze gerçekleştirilmiş ve sonuçlar bilgisayar ortamında değerlendirilmiştir. Bulgular: Anket sonuçlarına göre, 100 hastanın sadece 24’ünün bitki ve mantarları tedavi edici, tedavinin yan etkilerini azaltıcı veya daha iyi hissetmek için kullandığı saptanmıştır. Anket sonucunda toplam 17 farklı bitki ve 1 mantarın kullanıldığı tespit edilmiştir. Bu bitki ve mantarların kanser tedavisi üzerindeki etki mekanizması, yan etkileri ve uyarıları araştırılmıştır. Bu çalışma ile kanser hastalarının bitki ve mantarları nasıl temin ettikleri, yaş, cinsiyet veya sosyoekonomik durumun bitki ve mantar kullanımını nasıl etkilediği, kullanılan bitki veya mantardan yarar veya zarar nedeniyle ne tür geri bildirimler alındığı belirlenmiştir. Sonuç: Bitkilerin ve mantarların eczanelerden tedarik edilmemesi, "uzman" ve "güvenilir" başlığı altındaki kişilerin tavsiyesi ile bitkisel tedavilerin uygulanması birçok soruna neden olmaktadır. Yapılan anket çalışması, Türkiye'de kanser hastalarının bitki ve mantar kullanımına ilişkin fikir oluşturması açısından umut verici sonuçlar vermiştir. Gelecekte yapılacak benzer çalışmalar ile kanser tedavisi almakta olan hastaların bitki ve mantar kullanımlarının öğrenilmesi ve hastanın bir bütün olarak ele alınarak bu konuda eğitim almış uzmanların tavsiye vermeleri ümit edilmektedir. 

Objective: Medicinal herbs are commonly used as complementary or prophylaxis in common illness, as well as in diseases such as cancer, where the disease is severe. In order to determine the use of plants and mushrooms among cancer patients, a survey was conducted with 100 cancer patients who are receiving treatment at polyclinics at the Istanbul University Institute of Oncology. Material and Methods: The questionnaires were conducted face to face with the patients and the results were evaluated in computer. Results: According to the survey results, only 24 of 100 patients were found to use the plants and mushrooms for treatment, to reduce the side effects of the treatment or to feel better. As a result, it was determined that a total of 17 different plants and 1 mushroom were used. The mechanism of action, side effects, and warnings of these plants and mushrooms on cancer treatment have been investigated. With this study, it was determined how the patients obtained the plants and mushrooms, how the age, gender or socioeconomic status affect the plants and mushrooms used and what kind of feedback the patients give about their experience. Conclusion: The fact that the plants and mushrooms are not supplied by pharmacies, the application of herbal treatments with the advice of people under the title "expert" and "reliable" cause many problems. The survey study yielded promising results about the use of plants and mushrooms by cancer patients in Turkey. Similar studies are expected to be conducted in more clinics.
