I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with treatment for Prostate cancer after a kidney transplant? My dad was just recently diagnosed with Prostate cancer and we are very concerned about losing his kidney from the treatment and are trying to decide between radiation and surgery.

You are posting on a BRAIN cancer site. I don't think much can be properly answered about prostate cancer here. There is a thumbnail for prostate cancer. You will have better luck there getting answers you need..

My dad decided to go with radiation. We met with his kidney Dr. and the medical oncologist and they both felt that it was safe to do radiation. They just planted the marker seeds yesterday and today will do the mapping for radiation. He is treating at the Mayo Clinic in MN. His Dr. has successfully treated between 10-20 patients with prior kidney transplants, which is not a lot but he felt 100% sure that he would not harm the kidney. He has had 100% success rate.
Where is your husband treating?
