...and gives blood, can the recipient of the blood get the cancer?
They test 10% of the blood donated, so they say.
I met a woman 7 years ago, she was diagnosed with lung cancer. She swears it was from the transfusion she had 2 yrs earlier. She ate right, never smoked, didnt drink and ran. She was in a car accident and the Dr said to do an xray just in case, that is when they told her she was in stage 3 lung cancer.
Although the vote is split on wether you can get cancer from blood, I would say it is very posible. If you know you are having an operation, bank your own blood prior.
