Information for Patients with Molar Pregnancies or Choriocarcinoma

Diagnosis and treatment of Placental Site Trophoblast Tumour (PSTT)

Placental site trophoblastic tumour is a very rare diagnosis with less than 5 cases each year in the UK. This is also a form of cancer that arises after a pregnancy and is generally diagnosed months or years after the pregnancy. The most common symptoms are either abnormal bleeding or the periods stopping altogether. PSTT is also a highly curable illness, although the treatment can be more complicated than the other forms of GTT.

All patients with PSTT are seen and assessed at Charing Cross Hospital and their individualised treatment worked out.
