ICD-10-CM Code C30.1

Malignant neoplasm of middle ear

Version 2020 Billable Code Neoplasm Malignant Primary

Valid for Submission

C30.1 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of malignant neoplasm of middle ear. The code is valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code C30.1 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like malignant neoplasm of auditory tube, middle ear and mastoid air cells, malignant neoplasm of mastoid, malignant neoplasm of mastoid, malignant neoplasm of nasal cavities, middle ear and accessory sinuses, malignant tumor of eustachian tube, malignant tumor of mastoid air cells, etc

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: antrum (Highmore) (maxillary) tympanicum ; auditory canal (external) (skin) internal ; auditory tube ; auricular canal (external) [See Also: Neoplasm, skin, ear] internal ; cavity tympanic ; ear (external) [See Also: Neoplasm, skin, ear] inner ; ear (external) [See Also: Neoplasm, skin, ear] middle ; 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 C30.1:

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 antrum tympanicum
  • Malignant neoplasm of auditory tube
  • Malignant neoplasm of eustachian tube
  • Malignant neoplasm of inner ear
  • Malignant neoplasm of mastoid air cells
  • Malignant neoplasm of tympanic cavity

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 auricular canal external C43.2 C44.2
  • malignant neoplasm of bone of ear meatus C41.0
  • malignant neoplasm of cartilage of ear C49.0

Table of Neoplasms

The code C30.1 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


Cancer

Cancer begins in your cells, which are the building blocks of your body. Normally, your body forms new cells as you need them, replacing old cells that die. Sometimes this process goes wrong. New cells grow even when you don't need them, and old cells don't die when they should. These extra cells can form a mass called a tumor. Tumors can be benign or malignant. Benign tumors aren't cancer while malignant ones are. Cells from malignant tumors can invade nearby tissues. They can also break away and spread to other parts of the body.

Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for where they start. For example, lung cancer starts in the lung, and breast cancer starts in the breast. The spread of cancer from one part of the body to another is called metastasis. Symptoms and treatment depend on the cancer type and how advanced it is. Most treatment plans may include surgery, radiation and/or chemotherapy. Some may involve hormone therapy, immunotherapy or other types of biologic therapy, or stem cell transplantation.

Ear Disorders

Your ear has three main parts: outer, middle and inner. You use all of them in hearing. Sound waves come in through your outer ear. They reach your middle ear, where they make your eardrum vibrate. The vibrations are transmitted through three tiny bones, called ossicles, in your middle ear. The vibrations travel to your inner ear, a snail-shaped organ. The inner ear makes the nerve impulses that are sent to the brain. Your brain recognizes them as sounds. The inner ear also controls balance.

A variety of conditions may affect your hearing or balance:

  • Ear infections are the most common illness in infants and young children.
  • Tinnitus, a roaring in your ears, can be the result of loud noises, medicines or a variety of other causes.
  • Meniere's disease may be the result of fluid problems in your inner ear; its symptoms include tinnitus and dizziness.
  • Ear barotrauma is an injury to your ear because of changes in barometric (air) or water pressure.

Some ear disorders can result in hearing disorders and deafness.
