This study, which is based on a systematic review, focuses on the literature published in the field of cyberchondria in 2021 (January-September) and aims to offer suggestions for further research. In the study, the data obtained by scanning the word ‘cyberchondria' in Science Direct, Sprink Link, PubMed, Sage Journal, and Google Scholar databases were used. When accessing data, two inclusion criteria were set: First, the study's title included ‘cyberchondria.' Second, the release year was 2021. Doing this was important in three ways: The first was the existence of systematic analyzes in previous years. Therefore, the inclusion of 2020 and earlier in the study could have included the risk of duplication of existing literature. The second was to answer the question of what extent the cyberchondria is being discussed today. The third was to reveal the distinctiveness of the findings/inferences to be uttered in this book.
