Molar Pregnancy

Alternate Names : Hydatiform Mole, Trophoblastic Disease, Gestational Trophoblastic Neoplasia

Molar Pregnancy | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What are the signs and symptoms of the condition?

Common symptoms of this condition may include:

  • vaginal bleeding during pregnancy or shortly after a pregnancy, miscarriage, or abortion
  • severe nausea and vomiting, often bad enough to require treatment in the hospital
  • a uterus that grows slower or faster than normal during pregnancy
  • symptoms from an abnormally high level of thyroid hormone, also called hyperthyroidism
  • high blood pressure that begins for the first time in the first trimester. This may mean that preeclampsia, also called toxemia of pregnancy, is present.
  • symptoms of the tumor or cancer spreading to other organs. For example, coughing up blood may occur if the tumor goes to the lungs, or abdominal pain if the tumor goes to the liver.
