ICD-10-CM Code C17.1

Malignant neoplasm of jejunum

Version 2021 Billable Code Neoplasm Malignant Primary

Valid for Submission

C17.1 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of malignant neoplasm of jejunum. The code is valid for the fiscal year 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code C17.1 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like adenocarcinoma of small intestine or malignant tumor of jejunum or primary adenocarcinoma of jejunum or primary adenocarcinoma of small intestine or primary malignant neoplasm of jejunum.

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: Neoplasm, neoplastic intestine, intestinal small jejunum or Neoplasm, neoplastic jejunum .

Table of Neoplasms

The code C17.1 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


Intestinal Cancer

Also called: Duodenal cancer, Ileal cancer, Jejunal cancer, Small intestine cancer

Your small intestine is part of your digestive system. It is a long tube that connects your stomach to your large intestine. Intestinal cancer is rare, but eating a high-fat diet or having Crohn's disease, celiac disease, or a history of colonic polyps can increase your risk.

Possible signs of small intestine cancer include

  • Abdominal pain
  • Weight loss for no reason
  • Blood in the stool
  • A lump in the abdomen

Imaging tests that create pictures of the small intestine and the area around it can help diagnose intestinal cancer and show whether it has spread.

Surgery is the most common treatment. Additional options include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or a combination.
