If you have a positive pregnancy test with a gestational sac seen intrauterine on scan then you dont have a tumour.But the beta hcg levels are of concern.If the levels dont increase like a normal pregnancy than chances of carrying the pregnancy to term are low.Chances of miscarriage or missed abortion are low.You need another scan by 6-7 weeks,to see if the pregnancy is viable.
