C08.0 - Malignant neoplasm of submandibular gland

Version 2023
ICD-10:C08.0
Short Description:Malignant neoplasm of submandibular gland
Long Description:Malignant neoplasm of submandibular gland
Status: Valid for Submission
Version:ICD-10-CM 2023
Code Classification:
  • Neoplasms (C00–D48)
    • Malignant neoplasms of lip, oral cavity and pharynx (C00-C14)
      • Malignant neoplasm of other and unsp major salivary glands (C08)

C08.0 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of malignant neoplasm of submandibular 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 salivary gland or duct (major) submandibular or Neoplasm, neoplastic salivary gland or duct (major) submaxillary or Neoplasm, neoplastic submandibular gland or Neoplasm, neoplastic submaxillary gland or duct or Neoplasm, neoplastic Wharton's duct .

These terms are the conditions for which that code is to be used. The terms may be synonyms of the code title, or, in the case of "other specified" codes, the terms are a list of the various conditions assigned to that 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.

Patient Education


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:

Doctors diagnose salivary gland cancer using a physical exam, imaging tests, and a biopsy. Treatment can include surgery, radiation therapy, and/or chemotherapy.
