I believe ovarian cancers and some tumors on female organs can cause false positive urine test.

i've never heard of these causing a positive pregnancy test. Certain medicines containing hormones can cause a positive test.


i have been researching this stuff for my abdominal pregnancy and I have read that on the internet lately. Just like I cannot get a +test cuz I have no uterus. I need to start a column on it "how many pple are or have been pregnant and no +urine test, and or no +blood test"???

Hiyah jlee77==how are you doing??

She said it causes a false positive if you eat a large amount of it because of the way your body process it.

Cabbage
That's bizzare.

Things like tumors etc could cause a postive pregnancy test, because of the human growth hormone. The tumor would use it to grow itself.

I think it'd be unusual though, to get that high a level to show up on a pregnancy test.

Also, sometimes people use human growth hormone to increase muscle growth (same as steriods). Body builders and stuff use it sometimes.

This is kind of strange, but my fiance' learned in one of his biology classes last semester that if a man were to have testicular cancer, his urine produces more hcg than normal, thus causing a positve on a hpt.

yes I had to go back 3 different times for the test to come back normal after my molar pregnancy. Mine was when the male fertilizes the egg with 2 sperms--genetic failure--degenertion of the placents-fetal death and then cancer cells grow until miscarriage or removal. I miscarried mine and almost bleed to death.

That is funny--

I've never heard of being able to get pregnancy w/o a uterus. You said abdominal pregnancy. Wow. You must have been shocked to learn you were pregnant!

I have never heard of anything which gives a positive pregnancy test result other than pregnancy itself. Maybe you are not ready to accept the fact that you are pregnant. In all its probability it looks to me that you are pregnant..Do go for another test to be sure.
