Other tissues: pregnancy hormone (human chorionic gonadotropin) is typically produced by placenta, but can also be produced by other organ tissues (for example, ovaries, lung, pancreas). The increase of HCG over time in a patients blood is different from HCG produced by other organs. If production from other organs is suspected, a meticulous workup is mandatory.
