Can cancer patients donate blood, or their body organs after death?

alejandra t


Cancer: Basal cell, squamous cell skin cancers (both types of skin cancer) and keratosis (growth of a certain protein on your skin); can not donate until removed and healed. Melanoma; can not donate. Malignant tumors; can donate five years after removal of early stage contained solid tumor, no chemotherapy, and in remission.

Blood cannot be donated after death.
Try reading about organs on this: http://organdonor.gov/donation/who_donate.htm#a3

I don't think so...I mean, an entire Law and Order episode was made out of a donated organ giving a young boy advanced bone cancer, so probably not, although I don't remember the details of the episode...

In the USA, a cancer pt can donate their eye parts, but thats it. They have to be under the age of 80 and not septic or have any symptoms such as fever or elevated WBC.

Blood, organs from current or former cancer patients can not be donated in the UK for use in other patients. Donation for medical research or teaching tool is permitted though.

This may be different in other countries, but here in Australia, after cancer has been diagnosed, we are not allowed to donate blood or any organs other than corneas.

We can still donate our bodies for use as teaching tools as cadavers however.

Eligibility depends on the type of cancer and treatment history. If you had leukemia or lymphoma, including Hodgkin’s Disease and other cancers of the blood, you are not eligible to donate. Other types of cancer are acceptable if the cancer has been treated successfully and it has been at least 5 years since treatment was completed and there has been no cancer recurrence in this time. Some low-risk cancers including squamous or basal cell cancers of the skin do not require a 5 year waiting period.

Precancerous conditions of the uterine cervix do not disqualify you from donation if the abnormality has been treated successfully. You should discuss your particular situation with the health historian at the time of donation
