Organ transplantation is now considered the best surgical option for many disorders associated with organ failure. In contrast, the increased risk of cancer in solid-organ transplant recipients is remarkable when compared to the general population. In order to improve survival rates and quality of life following transplantation, the variables that contribute to the development of an increased risk of cancer should be investigated, and potential preventative treatments should be developed. In this review, we discussed solid organ transplantation and its relationship to neoplasm.
