Cancer has been one of the main concerns of the health sector in recent years. The utilization of nanoparticles in medical science has created new possibilities for diagnosing, imaging tumors, and treating cancer in humans. This article reviews the utilization of inorganic and organic nanoparticles in cancer treatment and diagnosis. The method of gathering and summarizing the information was through the research conducted in connection with the structure of various types of nanoparticles and their application in imaging, diagnosis, and drug delivery systems in cancer treatment. From inorganic nanoparticles including quantum particles, which have a central core with magnetic attributes, for cancer imaging and detection, as well as from organic nanoparticle systems including dendrimers, aptamers, solid lipid nanoparticles, liposomes, and nanoparticles in transportation. Various drugs and ligands can be used. Aptamers are oligonucleotide or peptide molecules that bind to protein or target cells and are used in diagnosis, treatment, drug delivery, and molecular imaging. Also, nanobodies are antibody molecules that are widely utilized in cancer treatment and diagnosis. According to the obtained results, there are still limitations and challenges to the utilization of nanoparticles in medicine, however, it is vision that shortly nanoparticles will create a great revolution not only in oncology but also in medicine.
