    Transplant recipients have a higher incidence of cancer compared with the general population. This increased risk is related to the intensity and chronicity of immunosuppression that these patients receive. The common types and presentations of posttransplant tumors are reviewed and discussed. Regular surveillance is of paramount importance in detecting such tumors. Treatment invariably includes attempts to reduce immunosuppression.
