Probably not.: "...Other types of cancer are acceptable if the cancer has been treated successfully and it has been more than 12 months since treatment was completed and there has been no cancer recurrence in this time." for more information see: http://www.Redcrossblood.Org/donating-blood/eligibility-requirements/eligibility-criteria-topic#med_cond.

No: Different countries have different rules but most are 5 years after treatment and many are never.
