This study, Assessment of the Availability of radiotherapy centres in Nigeria and utilization review of two selected hospitals in South-East and South-West geopolitical zones was done using retrospective method of data collection. The main purpose of the study was to find out the number and distributions of radiotherapy centres in Nigeria, types of treatment machines in the various centres, assessment of the level of utilization of radiotherapy centres in University of Nigeria teaching hospital (UNTH), Enugu and The Eko Hospital, Lagos and to determine the referral distributions and types of cases treated. The result showed that there are only nine (9) radiotherapy centres to a population of 149 million Nigerians. Linear Accelerator had 55.6% of the entire Radiotherapy machines in Nigeria. A total of 1227 treatments were done in both hospitals during the period of study. Ca Cervix and Ca Breast recorded the highest number of treatment referral for females, making a total of 42.3% and 79% respectively for both hospitals whereas Ca prostate recorded the highest treatment referral for males with a total of 21% of all the treatment in both hospitals. South-East and South-West had the highest referral distribution of 60% and 46.6% respectively. The result showed that Radiotherapy centres in Nigeria are inadequate; hence, government and private organizations are urged to encourage provision of more Radiotherapy centres for effective management and treatment of cancer in Nigeria
