What is hydatidiform mole?

A hydatidiform mole or molar pregnancy is an abnormal pregnancy where there is overgrowth of placental tissue and typically no viable embryo or fetus can develop. This rare condition occurs early in pregnancy when abnormal cell growth is present in the placenta. The fetus will not develop, and the abnormal tissue must be removed. Patients with this condition are at risk for excessive bleeding, severe nausea and vomiting and early onset preeclampsia (high blood pressure with risk of seizure and other concerns). Early diagnosis and management is important.

Symptoms of hydatidiform mole

  • Bleeding in between menstrual cycles / periods or after menopause

  • Possibility of being pregnant

  • Abnormal menstrual cycles e.g. too early or too late

  • Heartburn; painful burning feeling in the chest or throat

  • Pain in the pelvis- the lowest part of the abdomen, between the belly button and groin

  • Headache

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Abdominal pain

Questions your doctor may ask to check for hydatidiform mole

  • Have you experienced vaginal bleeding or discharge outside of your periods or after menopause?

  • Is there any chance that you might be pregnant?

  • Do you have irregular periods?

  • Are you experiencing heartburn?

  • Do you have pelvic pain?

Treatment for hydatidiform mole

Surgery is required to remove the abnormal tissue. Afterward, blood tests are needed for six months to a year to ensure the condition does not return. It is not advisable to become pregnant again during this time.
