ICD-10-CM Code C30.0

Malignant neoplasm of nasal cavity

Version 2020 Billable Code Neoplasm Malignant Primary

Valid for Submission

C30.0 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of malignant neoplasm of nasal cavity. The code is valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code C30.0 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like carcinoma of nasal cavity, carcinoma of nasal meatus, carcinoma of nasal septum, malignant melanoma of nasal cavity, malignant neoplasm of cartilage of nose, malignant neoplasm of nasal cavities, middle ear and accessory sinuses, etc

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: cartilage (articular) (joint) NEC [See Also: Neoplasm, bone] nose, nasal ; cavity nasal ; concha [See Also: Neoplasm, skin, ear] nose ; mucosa nasal ; nares, naris (anterior) (posterior) ; nose, nasal cartilage ; nose, nasal cavity ; etc

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 C30.0:

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.
  • Malignant neoplasm of cartilage of nose
  • Malignant neoplasm of nasal concha
  • Malignant neoplasm of internal nose
  • Malignant neoplasm of septum of nose
  • Malignant neoplasm of vestibule of nose

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.
  • malignant neoplasm of nasal bone C41.0
  • malignant neoplasm of nose NOS C76.0
  • malignant neoplasm of olfactory bulb C72.2
  • malignant neoplasm of posterior margin of nasal septum and choana C11.3

Table of Neoplasms

The code C30.0 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


Nasal Cancer

Your paranasal sinuses are small hollow spaces around the nose. They are lined with cells that make mucus, which keeps your nose from drying out. The nasal cavity is the passageway just behind your nose. Air passes through it on the way to your throat as you breathe.

Cancer of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses is rare. You are at greater risk if you are

  • Male and over 40 years old
  • Exposed to certain workplace chemicals
  • Infected with HPV
  • A smoker

There may be no symptoms at first, and later symptoms can be like those of infections. Doctors diagnose nasal cancer with imaging tests, lighted tube-like instruments that look inside the nose, and biopsies. Treatment options include surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.
