Hydatid mole Picture

A rare mass or growth that may form inside the uterus at the beginning of a pregnancy. Hydatidiform moles arise from fetal tissue and, therefore can only occur in conjunction with the early stages of pregnancy. The mass is usually placental material that grows uncontrolled. Frequently there is no fetus at all. The cause of this developmental disorder is not completely understood. Potential causes may include defects of the ovum (egg), abnormalities within the uterus, and/or nutritional deficiencies.

As seen in the pictuer a Hydatid mole is a mass of cells and not a mole as would appear on the skin.
