ICD-10-CM Code C14.8

Malignant neoplasm of overlapping sites of lip, oral cavity and pharynx

Version 2021 Billable Code Neoplasm Malignant Primary

Valid for Submission

C14.8 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of malignant neoplasm of overlapping sites of lip, oral cavity and pharynx. The code is valid for the fiscal year 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code C14.8 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like carcinoma of lip, oral cavity and pharynx or malignant neoplasm of gum and contiguous sites or malignant neoplasm of lip, oral cavity and pharynx or overlapping malignant neoplasm of lip, oral cavity and pharynx or overlapping malignant neoplasm of oral cavity and lips and salivary glands.

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: Neoplasm, neoplastic lip overlapping lesion with oral cavity or pharynx or Neoplasm, neoplastic oral (cavity) ill-defined .

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 guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more. The following references are applicable to the code C14.8:

Inclusion Terms

Inclusion Terms
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. The inclusion terms are not necessarily exhaustive. Additional terms found only in the Alphabetic Index may also be assigned to a code.
  • Primary malignant neoplasm of two or more contiguous sites of lip, oral cavity and pharynx

Type 1 Excludes

Type 1 Excludes
A type 1 excludes note is a pure excludes note. It means "NOT CODED HERE!" An Excludes1 note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as the code above the Excludes1 note. An Excludes1 is used when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.
  • 'book leaf' neoplasm ventral surface of tongue and floor of mouth C06.89

Synonyms

The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:

  • Carcinoma of lip, oral cavity and pharynx
  • Malignant neoplasm of gum and contiguous sites
  • Malignant neoplasm of lip, oral cavity and pharynx
  • Overlapping malignant neoplasm of lip, oral cavity and pharynx
  • Overlapping malignant neoplasm of oral cavity and lips and salivary glands

  • 149.9 - Mal neo orophryn ill-def (Approximate Flag)

Code Classification

  • Neoplasms (C00–D48)
    • Malignant neoplasms of lip, oral cavity and pharynx (C00-C14)
      • Malig neoplasm of sites in the lip, oral cavity and pharynx (C14)

  • FY 2021 - No Change, effective from 10/1/2020 through 9/30/2021

Table of Neoplasms

The code C14.8 is included 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.

Information for Patients


Throat Cancer

Also called: Hypopharyngeal cancer, Laryngeal cancer, Laryngopharyngeal cancer, Nasopharyngeal cancer, Oropharyngeal cancer, Pharyngeal cancer

Throat cancer is a type of head and neck cancer. Throat cancer has different names, depending on which part of the throat is affected. The different parts of your throat are called the oropharynx, the hypopharynx, the nasopharynx, and the larynx, or voice box.

The main risk factors for throat cancer are using tobacco heavy drinking. Certain types of throat cancer also have other risk factors. For example, having HPV is a risk factor for oropharyngeal cancer.

Symptoms of throat cancer may include

  • A sore throat that does not go away
  • A lump in the neck
  • Pain or ringing in the ears
  • Trouble swallowing
  • Ear pain

To diagnose throat cancers, doctors may do a physical exam and history, imaging tests, and a biopsy. You may also need other tests, depending on the type of cancer. Treatments include surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Treatment for some types of throat cancer may also include targeted therapy. Targeted therapy uses substances that attack cancer cells without harming normal cells.
