This rare type of tumor that most often affects pregnant women is called a gestational choriocarcinoma. The cancer usually starts in your uterus but can spread to other parts of the body. It can happen after a miscarriage, abortion, ectopic pregnancy, or molar pregnancy when an egg is fertilized, but the placenta develops into a mass of cysts instead of a fetus.
If the choriocarcinoma is in your vagina, it could cause bleeding.
If it has spread to other parts of your body like your lungs or brain, you may notice:
- Trouble breathing
- Chest pain
If your tumor is low-risk, meaning it’s small and hasn’t spread, chemotherapy is the main treatment. You’ll get it until there are no signs of cancer in your body based on hCG levels.
If your cancer is high-risk, you may need surgery and chemo, or surgery, chemo, and radiation.
Nearly all women diagnosed with the disease are cured with treatment, though it’s less likely if the disease has spread to your liver or your liver and your brain. But each case is different, and your doctor will discuss the option that’s right for you.
