03. PTC: Cancer Types

Each type of organ transplant comes with cancer risks that may be different due to unique biology of that organ, or more commonly, due to the different drug protocals - both drug type and dosage - used for each type of transplant.  

In this LOOK section you will find topics related to the most common types of cancer a recipient faces, as described under the various organ risk specific topics in the LEARN section of this educational web site.

Keep in mind that many cancers are non-symptomatic, making it hard for the patient to recognize any external symptoms.  In surveys of transplant patients who have experienced those cancers, it is common to learn how coincidental the find was, usually identified in a non-related test or procedure that exposed a tumor that was not the subject of that procedure.
