A Gestational Trophoblastic Neoplasia diagnosis can only be made after a dilation and curettage. The tissue obtained will be reviewed by a pathologist for definitive diagnosis. Prior to this procedure, patients may undergo blood testing and ultrasound imaging.
Gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD) is most often found either as a result of abnormal signs or symptoms during pregnancy or from the results of above tests during routine prenatal care. These may lead the doctor to order further tests.
Once the diagnosis is made, you will require referral to a gynecologic oncologist for follow-up and treatment options.
