Methods: This study used a retrospective design, whose sample were nasopharyngeal cancer patients who seek treatment at Dr Kariadi were taken vulnerable time in the years 2006-2010. The data has been retrieved and processed by using SPSS computer program. Analysis of data in this study included descriptive analysis and hypothesis testing. Test hypothesis using Wilcoxon test with data not normally distributed. Degree of significance is p ≤ 0.05. Results: The variable data is not normally distributed, then the analysis used Wilcoxon test. This study found no significant differences in hemoglobin concentration in patients with nasopharyngeal cancer before and after radiotherapy with p 0.056.
