Purpose: Although there are many myths about cancer in Turkey, there is no study evaluating Turkish public's knowledge about cancer The goals of our research were to: 1) measure the extent of knowledge of cancer among the Turkish public; 2) determine the differences in extent of cancer-related knowledge between participants who have relatives with cancer and those who do not; and 3) determine the sources of knowledge possessed.
