false pregnancy test

Would having stage 1 ovarian cancer (germ cell) give false pregnancy test results, I have it and think i might be pregnant and have taken 3 tests that show positive results. What are other factors that might cause a test to show positive results even if you arent actually pregnant?

Some ovarian tumopurs can secrete HCG, th epregnancy hormone. This would give you a false positive pregnancy test. The other cause would be if you are given HCG injections as treatment for infertility. A molar pregnancy would also give a positive pregnancy test.
