Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,
So her quantitative HCG is elevated?
By negative scan, do you mean ultrasound?
When was her last period exactly?
It sounds like she's not pregnant.
Nothing on ultrasound is pretty diagnostic.
In addition, her last period was about 3 weeks ago.
The elevated HCG could either be going up or coming down and could be falsely elevated.
The repeat test in a few days will tell us where it's going.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.
If it's going up, the cause should be determined.
There are some tumors which can secrete HCG but I have no reason to suspect that at this moment with the info provided.
Is there anything else I can answer for you?
