Keep genetic testing confidential?


Ask-the-Expert Online Conference

Question from Eadie: Because of my family history (breast and prostate cancer on both sides), I would like to have genetic testing. But I am very concerned about the information being given to my employer or otherwise getting out. Do I need to be worried about keeping this confidential?
Answers - Lynn Hartmann You raise a very valid point, but there have been very few instances of discrimination in employment or insurance because of genetic testing information.
