Is an invasive mola the same as a hydatidiform mola?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 01/04/2022

No. Invasive mole is a type of hydatidiform mole (partial or complete) that has spread into the myometrium, that is, into the muscular layer of the uterine body. It is therefore a complication of hydatidiform mole and gives rise to cancer.
