Choriocarcinoma is a fast-growing form of cancer that occurs in a woman's uterus. The abnormal cells start in the tissue that would normally become the placenta. This is the organ that develops during pregnancy to feed the fetus. A possible symptom is abnormal or irregular vaginal bleeding along with abdominal pain.
HOW IS CHORIOCARCINOMA DIAGNOSED?
It is diagnosed by an oncologist by the following tests and physical examination:
1. Blood test
3. Chest X-ray
HOW IS CHORIOCARCINOMA TREATED?
Since gestational choriocarcinoma contains paternal DNA, it is exquisitely sensitive to chemotherapy. The cure rate, even for metastatic gestational choriocarcinoma, is around 90-95%. At present treatment with single agent methotrexate is recommended for low-risk disease, while intense combination regimens including EMACO are recommended for intermediate or high-risk disease. Hysterectomy is a method of treatment.
