In brief: Lung function

The magnitude of risk depends on the degree of activity of sarcoidosis and his current lung function.
If it is dormant and his lung function is normal, there should be no additional risk. If his lung function is severely compromised anesthesia could be very risky. His doctor is the best judge.

In brief: Preoperative check

Sarcoidosis is a disease that causes granulomas to form in different parts of body typically the lungs and skin.
There are associations with urologic diseases primarily kidney stones. I do know any association with prostate cancer. As for surgery risk, that would best be determined by an anesthesiologist prior to his procedure.
