Following are a few drawbacks of personalised medicine:
- One of the primary concerns of the growing use of personalised medicine is the moral issue of patient's privacy.
- Incidental findings is another ethical problem. Detecting life changing disease which possibly has no treatment can lead to mental distress and can have a crucial impact on patient's life.
- Furthermore, incorrect findings are also a moral problem as they can lead to unnecessary expense of healthcare.
