What is Complete hydatidiform mole?
Complete hydatidiform mole is a rare type of abnormal pregnancy in which a fertilized egg develops into a mass of cysts instead of a fetus. It is caused by an abnormality in the egg or sperm that results in an abnormal fertilization. Symptoms of complete hydatidiform mole include vaginal bleeding, abdominal pain, and an enlarged uterus. Treatment typically involves the removal of the mole through a surgical procedure.

What are the causes of Complete hydatidiform mole?
Complete hydatidiform mole is caused by an abnormality in the genetic material of the sperm or egg. It occurs when an egg is fertilized by two sperm, resulting in an embryo with three sets of chromosomes instead of the normal two. This causes the embryo to develop abnormally and form a hydatidiform mole.
What are the treatments for Complete hydatidiform mole?
The treatment for complete hydatidiform mole is typically a surgical procedure called a dilation and curettage (D&C). During this procedure, the doctor will remove the molar tissue from the uterus. In some cases, a hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus) may be recommended. In addition to surgery, your doctor may also recommend chemotherapy or radiation therapy to reduce the risk of recurrence.
