Due to the many advantages of microstrip patch antennas, nowadays, microstrip patch antennas are mostly preferred in biomedical areas. This study aims two antenna structures, as both transceiver and receiver, have same dimensions are designed to produce solution of the difficulties in pathology. For antennas with an operating frequency of 2.45 GHz, FR-4 substrate material with a value of 4.4 dielectrics is used. A model has been prepared to detect the presence of skin cancer with the designed antennas. The model is a method of determining E-field and scattering parameters differences between two antennas of cancerous and normal tissue specimens placed on the glass slides. The same antennas and experimental setup were prepared with the normal and cancerous structure of the skin tissue prepared by pathologists. Thus, scattering parameters are measured and their differences are determined. It has been shown that cancerous tissue can be determined with different values obtained as a result. Ansys HFSS program is used for designs and simulations.
