Christopher J. Kane, MD, professor of Surgery, chair, Department of Urology, UC San Diego Health, discusses challenges facing genetic testing for patients with prostate cancer.

According to Kane, the technology often outstrips the ethics and the clinical precision data. We have multiple ways to obtain various genetic data, but physicians are still unsure of the next steps following that information.

It is still quite early in the genetic testing space, so more studies are required to develop new data, states Kane.
