Beta-HCG (Quantitative) - Tumor Marker

Beta-HCG, also known as human chorionic gonadotropin, is a hormone produced by the placenta during pregnancy. In addition to its role in pregnancy, Beta-HCG is also used as a tumor marker. This is because certain cancers can produce this hormone. The quantitative Beta-HCG test measures the amount of the hormone in the blood. This test is significant in the diagnosis and monitoring of certain types of cancer, especially germ cell tumors and trophoblastic disease, as well as in monitoring the progress of pregnancy.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Beta-HCG test is done primarily to confirm pregnancy, estimate the age of the fetus, and diagnose any potential complications in pregnancy. Additionally, it is used as a tumor marker to help diagnose and monitor certain types of cancer.

The presence of elevated hCG levels, which surpass the normal range, can often signal the existence of certain cancers, such as germ cell tumors or trophoblastic disease, especially in men or non-pregnant women.

Beta hCG blood test results are considered positive for pregnancy when they are > 5 mlU/mL. However, for at-home urine tests to detect pregnancy, higher concentrations of hCG, usually at least 20 mIU/mL, are required.

The normal range for hCG as a tumor marker usually remains below 5 IU/L, with a half-life that extends between 24 and 36 hours.

Symptoms of high hCG levels include nausea, vomiting, breast tenderness, frequent urination, and in rare cases, complications like hyperemesis gravidarum or trophoblastic disease.
