Time to take this seriously.
Currently, renal failure patients with a history of prostate cancer are recommended to have a 2 to 5-year disease-free interval prior to being allowed to receive a kidney transplant. This disease is now amenable to curative therapy if diagnosed at an early stage when the tumor is organ-confined. We report a patient undergoing immediate renal transplantation following a laparoscopic radical prostatectomy for the treatment of prostate cancer. Candidates for renal transplantation who are diagnosed with early stage, organ-confined prostate cancer may be immediately considered for transplantation following radical prostatectomy in view of the high likelihood of cure of their prostate cancer.
