There is 1 disease interaction with chorionic gonadotropin (hcg):

Major

HCG (Includes chorionic gonadotropin (hcg)) ↔ androgen- dependent neoplasm

Severe Potential Hazard, High plausibility. Applies to: Prostate Cancer

The use of chorionic gonadotropin is contraindicated for use in patients with prostatic or other androgen- dependent neoplasm. HCG activity is identical to that of luteinizing hormone (LH) and, to a small degree, that of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), resulting in production of androgens by the testis.
