The Checkup

An airline pilot goes to his regular medical checkup. The doctor discovers that he has developed a heart murmur. The pilot only has a month to go before he is eligible for retirement. The doctor knows this and wonders whether, under these unusual circumstances, she is justified in withholding the information about the pilot's condition until he can retire. If doctor releases the information now, he wouldn't get any retirement benefits. What should the doctor do?
