What Is The Difference Between A Complete And A Partial Hydatidiform Mole
Genetics + more: A complete mole is formed when a sperm fertilizes an empty egg & duplicates, or when two sperm fertilize an empty egg. It has 46 chromosomes (all paternal). A partial mole develops when two sperm (or one sperm that duplicates) fertilize an egg & has 69 chromosomes. Fetal parts are usually only found in partial moles. Complete moles inc risk for choriocarcinoma (a type of tumor) more than partial moles.See 1 more doctor answer
No.: A hydratidiform mole occurs in a molar pregnancy. This is an abnormal form of pregnancy where a egg that had lost its dna becomes fertilized by sperm (complete mole) or an egg becomes fertilized by two sperm or a sperm that has duplicated itself (partial mole). Molar pregnancies occur randomly, in about 1/1000 pregnancies, and cannot survive. They can develop into choriocarcinoma, a form of cancer.See 1 more doctor answer
Molar pregnancy: Being younger or older is a risk factor for a molar pregnancy. One of the causes of a molar pregnancy is dispermy, or the fertilization of the egg by two sperm. Perhaps the eggs of younger or older women are more susceptible to this happening. This is my opinion.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes.: It is considered a mild form of gtd.
Following HCG levels: After a woman has a D&C to remove a molar pregnancy, it is usually recommended that she go on a reliable method of birth control and avoid conceiving for a year. Serial measurements of the HCG level are done and are important to determine if the molar prenancy has been completely removed and then to make sure that there is not reocurrance, which is associated with a poorer outcome.See 1 more doctor answer
Preg terminated bec cystic hygroma&other anomalies, lab test (of cells of abortion) says hydatidiform mole, but there was a baby&pulse, how come?
This can co-exist: A normal pregnacy and a molar pregnacy or cells can coexist.
Had hydatidiform mole pregnancy, it was terminated bec cystic hygroma fetus, do I've chance for another normal preg? Do I need treatment?
Yes: Any abnormal pregnancies such as this are due to genetic it Tatian's which can happen only one time there's no guarantee you will have another problem like this. To be sure you might want to have genetic counseling or you can check your chromosomes it's possible that you have a chromosome disease that could be inherited most likely it is a random mutation which will never happen again
Can hydatiform mole occur even if am not pregnant? Also dint have successfull pentration even though we tried. Lab pregnancy urine test is +ve. Not sure
Probably pregnant: It's possible to get pregnant even without penetration. Enough seminal fluid can sometimes get into the vagina and cervix to get you pregnant. So if your pregnancy test is positive, it's likely true. A hydatidiform mole is much less likely, but possible. See your doctor, and some blood HCG levels can help figure it all out.
Big difference.: Moles are benign lesions that stable over time but may grow slowly. If they suddenly change, a biopsy may be recommended. Keloids grow and be one larger over time and generally associated with trauma or injury or inflammation. The keloid in the photo has been treated whereas the other smaller pigmented lesions appear more similar to moles.See 1 more doctor answer
The difference is...: That atypia in a mole (or nevus) is generally thought to represent a premalignant change but not an invasive malignancy. A melanoma is a malignant tumor that can invade surrounding tissue and metastasize (spread) to other organs and lymph nodes. The difference is premalignant vs. Malignant.See 2 more doctor answers
Depth: The main difference is depth. In punch biopsy you try to get as much depth as possible while in a shave you try to scrape the lesion without going too deep.
Why do you ask?: Freckles darken and lighten depending on sun exposure and occur in groups. A lentigo is a solitary dark spot that's flat. A nevus tends to be larger than a lentigo and may be palpable. The latter two are often called "moles". A pathologist can tell the difference on biopsy. It's more important that you be able to recognize lesions suspicions for melanoma and get them off promptly.
Biopsy is only: Way to tell for sure. A qualified dermatologist can usually tell the difference between a benign or suspicious lesion in the majority of cases, so you should see one if your mole has changed appearance or increased in size.
A biopsy: A skin tag tends to look like a grainof rice or small tag coming from the skin they are no cancerous more common in overweight persons with redundant folds of skin the neck and axilla are common places. A mole is a growth of cells on the skin normally bening but some can change and that is why you should see a dermatologist. Moles tend to be round smoothed walled and ma have hairs.
What's the difference between a regular mole and a dysplastic nevus? Both had the potential to become malignant.
D. Nevi vs. Melanoma: Any skin color can have nevi, but they are harder to follow on dark skin. Nevi, pigmented lesions, can change color, itch, bleed, or have irregular borders. They are on the spectrum from dysplastic nevus to malignant melanoma. Some people have many nevi and are at higher risk of getting a melanoma, especially with family history. Sun Protective clothing is key: sunscreen doesn't block melanoma.
What is the difference between moles and lentigos? Does having a large number of lentigos signify a greater likelihood of getting melanoma?
Skin lesions: Both typically benign but need to have regular skin checks of whole body by dermatologist.See 2 more doctor answers
Moles and freckles: Freckles are small brown spots usually found on the face and arms. Freckles are extremely common and are not a health threat. They are more often seen in the summer, especially among lighter-skinned people and people with light or red hair.Moles are growths on the skin that are usually brown or black. Moles can appear anywhere on the skin, alone or in groups.
