Hi, Thanks for posting in HCM. I understand your concern. Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a hormone produced by the placenta after implantation. Since some of the cancerous tumorus produce this hormone, elevated levels measured when the patient is not pregnant can help to diagnose cancer. It is considered to be a tumour marker of certain tumours like germ cell and trophoblastic tumours. However, diagnosis needs to be established by other investigations available. Kindly consult Endocrinologist as scheduled and do the necessary follow-up as suggested. Hope the information provided would be helpful. All the best.
