1.7.2 Withholding Information and Reports

It is highly unethical to withhold medical information from a patient other than in cases where the patient is impaired in a way that they cannot make decisions on their own, and there is an absence of an immediate relation to the patient. 

Healthcare providers have an ethical responsibility to disclose and report any tests and diagnoses of the patient and address any concerns they might have.
