Ethical Issues in Precision Pathology

Abstract

With a growing role of precision pathology in the healthcare system, pathologists are facing more ethical issues and challenges. These include but are not limited to: autonomy versus social responsibility; reporting genes with unknown functions; the right to know the results and to be tested; healthcare disparity; what represents the standard of care; prenatal test and the fetus’s right; genetic discrimination and eugenics, etc. New medical and ethical standards need to be established to guide the practice of precision pathology.
