The quantities of trace elements and their changes in normal and malignant tissue samples taken from six cancerous patients have been investigated by instrumental neutron activation analysis method (INAA), 29 elements (Na, K, Br, Au, Mo, U, Zn, Cr, Sb, Sc, Rb, La, Fe, Co, Te, Ce, Ru, Zr, Se, Ag, Cs, Nd, Ca, Hg, Cu, Ba, Ni, Xe, As) were observed in different amounts in normal and malignant tissues. The amounts of some elements were found to be increased in the malignant tissues as compared to those of normal ones, while others decreased or remained constant. It is thought that the concentration ratios of an element in malignant tissues as compared to those of normal ones were affected by diseases.
