What is recurrent gestational trophoblastic disease?

Recurrent gestational trophoblastic disease is disease that has recurred (come back) after it has been treated.

Recurrence is when the gestational trophoblastic disease comes back in the same part of the body. Secondary gestational trophoblastic disease is when it spreads to another part of the body.

Gestational trophoblastic disease may come back in the uterus or in other parts of the body.

For women who have had a hydatidiform mole in the past, the chance of it occurring again is about one per cent.

Treatment options for recurrent gestational trophoblastic disease

Treatment for recurrent gestational trophoblastic disease will probably be chemotherapy.

A clinical trial may also be possible.
