The placenta allows nutrient exchange between the mother and her fetus and also protects the future baby against some infections the mother could be suffering from during the pregnancy. Unfortunately, in some rare cases, the placenta is the starting point of a GTD tumour. These tumours appear during or after pregnancies, from months to years post-delivery. They can be either benign or malignant.
