Could write a book: A molar pregnancy is a pre-cancerous condition caused by a genetic defect in the pregnancy tissue, usually caused by two sperm entering a defective empty egg. A partial mole has some fetal tissue present with a placenta made up of at least some 'molar' tissue. A complete mole is completely molar placental tissue. Partial moles are less dangerous and less likely to persist after treatment.

Not good: It is a tumor that is part fetus part placenta growth tumor.

Abnormal pregnancy: A molar pregnancy is an abnormal pregnancy occurring when an fertilized egg receives too much chromosomal material from the sperm. They can cause heavy vaginal bleeding and require a D&C to remove the abnormal tissue. It is characterized as a complete or partial mole based on the number of chromosomes. Pregnancy hormones will be monitored post-operatively until they return to normal.
