Doctor :   After fertilization the embryo differentiates into fetal and placental tissue. The fetal tissue develops into the baby and the placental tissue provides nourishment for the baby from the mother. During the first trimester, the placenta or trophoblast, is many times larger than the fetus and has the ability to grow independently. The placenta may continue to grow even without a viable fetus present. In rarer cases a pregnancy consists of abnormal placental tissue, called a molar pregnancy, which can have the potential for uncontrolled growth, like a tumor or cancer. These tumors are also called gestational trophoblastic disease. Molar pregnancy, or hydatidiform mole, is a pregnancy which has defective growth patterns. The placental tissue grows abnormally appearing as multiple cysts that have been classically described as a "bunch of grapes". There are two subtypes of moles: complete and partial. Complete moles have no fetal tissue present while partial moles have some fetal tissue and some normal placental tissue.
