In brief: Need specifics.
If you are receiving radiation treatments to treat a cancer, it would depend on the type of cancer, where it was located, and the success of it's treatment.
You should discuss this with your transplant team.

In brief: See below
If you are undergoing radiation for treatment of a cancer, a kidney transplant is not feasable.
Generally speaking a transplant center will not perform a kidney transplant on persons who are diagnosed with cancer and within 2-5 years after having a cancer treated and going into remmission. These decisions are at the discretion of individual transplant centers.
