Not eligible.

Detailed Answer:
Good Day and thank you for being with Healthcare Magic!

kidney stones are absolute contraindications for kidney donation. They are not eligible as donors because the recipient might develop stone also.

in terms of the PSA he might need to do prostate biopsy to rule out cancer.

is this true for bladder stones?
Removal of them, still disqualifies them to be a donor??

Brief Answer:
Pls see detailed answer.

Detailed Answer:
Bladder stone per she does not disqualify for kidney donation as long as it is not a migrant stone from the kidney. If the bladder stone is secondary to BPH then he is qualified for kidney donation.
