What complications can arise from hydatidiform mole?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez (embryologist).
Last Update: 01/04/2022

The main complication is excessive bleeding that can occur during the removal of the hydatidiform mole.

Another very feared complication is the possibility that the hydatidiform mole may develop into choriocarcinoma, a type of tumor. This cancer can metastasize and invade other structures in the woman's body.
