Fact Check

Is turbo cancer a real thing?

Radiation Oncologist

No evidence shows that turbo cancer is a real thing. We previously consulted with Dr. Sarthak Moharir, MBBS, MD, Radiation Oncology for the story Covid vaccines cause turbo cancer to show that during the Covid pandemic, many cancer patients experienced delays in receiving timely and adequate treatment due to concerns about the risk of infection and the postponement of elective surgeries. Consequently, many of these patients progressed to advanced stages of the disease. Conversely, in India, the extensive screening of HRCT thoraxes led to the incidental diagnosis of cancer in some individuals, as their tumors were discovered at the early stages of the disease.

Does a new study confirm that mRNA COVID-19 vaccines cause turbo cancer?

No, the study mentioned in the Twitter post does not provide confirmation that mRNA COVID-19 vaccines cause ‘turbo cancer’. In fact, our examination of the research paper reveals statements indicating that it cannot establish a causal relationship between the vaccine and cancer. Additionally, reputable sources such as Pfizer, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, and the Indian Ministry of Health & Family Welfare have not released any updates supporting the claim. Moreover, we have found published evidence refutes the notion that ‘turbo cancer’ is a real phenomenon, dismissing it as a myth.

There are a lot of misinformation related to Covid Vaccine on social media. THIP Media has also debunked several claims such as actor Matthew Perry died of Covid vaccine, COVID-19 vaccine shorten life span, or Covid- 19 vaccines have increased the cases of breast cancer. The claims and are endless. Therefore, it becomes important to spread the awareness about misinformation.
