C07 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of malignant neoplasm of parotid gland. The code is valid during the fiscal year 2023 from October 01, 2022 through September 30, 2023 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms reference this diagnosis code given the correct histological behavior: Neoplasm, neoplastic parotid (duct) (gland) or Neoplasm, neoplastic salivary gland or duct (major) parotid or Neoplasm, neoplastic Stensen's duct .
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Adenoid cystic carcinoma of parotid gland
- Adenoid cystic carcinoma of salivary gland
- Carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma of parotid gland
- Carcinoma of parotid gland
- Malignant tumor of parotid gland
- Mucoepidermoid carcinoma of parotid gland
- Mucoepidermoid carcinoma of salivary gland
- Primary adenocarcinoma of parotid gland
- Primary carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma of salivary gland
- Primary malignant neoplasm of parotid gland
- Primary squamous cell carcinoma of parotid gland
Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries
The Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries is a list of ICD-10 codes, organized "head to toe" into chapters and sections with coding notes and guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more. The following references are applicable to this diagnosis code:
Use Additional CodeUse Additional Code
The “use additional code” indicates that a secondary code could be used to further specify the patient’s condition. This note is not mandatory and is only used if enough information is available to assign an additional code.

Table of Neoplasms
This code is referenced in the table of neoplasms by anatomical site. For each site there are six possible code numbers according to whether the neoplasm in question is malignant, benign, in situ, of uncertain behavior, or of unspecified nature. The description of the neoplasm will often indicate which of the six columns is appropriate.
Where such descriptors are not present, the remainder of the Index should be consulted where guidance is given to the appropriate column for each morphological (histological) variety listed. However, the guidance in the Index can be overridden if one of the descriptors mentioned above is present.

Salivary Gland Cancer
Your salivary glands make saliva - sometimes called spit - and empty it into your mouth through openings called ducts. Saliva makes your food moist, which helps you chew and swallow. It helps you digest your food. It also cleans your mouth and contains antibodies that can kill germs.
Salivary gland cancer is a type of head and neck cancer. It is rare. It may not cause any symptoms, or you could notice:
- A lump in your ear, cheek, jaw, lip, or inside the mouth
- Fluid draining from your ear
- Trouble swallowing or opening the mouth widely
- Numbness, weakness, or pain in your face
Doctors diagnose salivary gland cancer using a physical exam, imaging tests, and a biopsy. Treatment can include surgery, radiation therapy, and/or chemotherapy.
