Summary

Summary
Gestational trophoblastic disease, although highly curable, is an emotionally traumatic event in a women’s life, not only because of the pregnancy loss, but also because of the fear of cancer. Treatment of malignant GTD can impact significantly on her self-image, relationship with her spouse/significant other, family and friends. It is important for women to make use of all available psychological and social services and spiritual support to help them through this difficult time.
