Kidney Transplant


A kidney transplant is the second most common transplant operation in the U.S.

Previously, research has shown these patients are more susceptible to certain skin cancers. But a new study says these patients are also at risk for other cancer types.

After a kidney transplant patients had increased risk of 25 different kinds of cancer. For some types, the risk was nearly 18 times higher.

Despite the findings experts say a transplant is still the best treatment for kidney failure.
