Hydatidiform mole (HM) is the most common type of GTD. Explore the links on this page to learn more about GTD treatment and. Abstract. Choriocarcinoma of the ovary is a rare and highly malignant germ cell tumor. There are three ways in which an ovarian choriocarcinoma can arise: as a primary gestational choriocarcinoma that results from an ectopic ovarian pregnancy, as a metastatic choriocarcinoma that arises from a gestational choriocarcinoma, and as a germ cell tumor with differentiation .

    The NCCN Guidelines Panel for Cervical Cancer Screening endorses the following guidelines. For the prevention and early detection of cervical cancer: American Cancer Society, American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology, and American Society for Clinical Pathology screening guidelines for the prevention and early detection of cervical cancer.   In GTD, the tumor grows from the placenta and can be cancerous or non-cancerous. Therefore, choriocarcinoma is basically a malignant form of gestational trophoblastic disease. The causes of choriocarcinoma varies widely and in most cases starts from molar pregnancy or hydatidiform tion: MD-Radiothrapy,MBBS.
