Nanotechnology is a multidisciplinary field that covers large areas of chemistry, physics, and biology as well as engineering. The application in medicine for diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, has become known as nanomedicine and is now an excellent tool for new nanotechnological applications, such as the use of biosensors. This study aimed to analyze bibliometrics related to applications in biosensors and the relative importance of these publications in cancer. The search base for articles was Google Scholar, due to the higher coverage of articles published in comparison to other databases of scientific publications, such as Pubmed and Science Direct. The obtained results showed that there was a decrease in the number of publications referring to cancer at the last decade (2007-2017), but there was an increase in the number of publications regarding the use of biosensors, showing an interest and tendency using new technologies for clinical diagnosis. Nanotechnology is a promising tool for the development of new diagnostic methods and its growth for the next decades is undeniable, including biosensors.
