What can cause a false positive pregnancy test? Is it possible to not be far enough along for a blood test to detect pregnancy?

In brief: Tumor and yes

Early menopause may raise serum betahcg levels enough to give a false positive, some tumors and molar pregnancy produce beta HCG and will give a positive test.
Yes, you may be too early in pregnancy to have a positive blood test. If you think you are pregnant, you may wish to repeat the tests in a week.
