Is Burkitt Leukemia Inheritable Due To A Higher Risk For Lymphoma And Melanoma?

Hello I am the grateful recipient of a Kidney Transplant, 4 yrs. out. I Mono, EBV IS 399.
My Father died of Burkitts Leukemia; is this possibly genetic as I am higher risk for Lymphoma & Mel
anoma.
I also had a 1st Kidney Transplant from '98- 'o8. It is been suggested that loss was from BK Virus.
Thank You.

Burkitt Lymphoma/leukemia is not hereditary. So you need not worry about that.
