ICD-10-CM Code C41.3

Malignant neoplasm of ribs, sternum and clavicle

Version 2021 Billable Code Neoplasm Malignant Primary

Valid for Submission

C41.3 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of malignant neoplasm of ribs, sternum and clavicle. The code is valid for the fiscal year 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code C41.3 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like carcinoma of ribs and/or sternum and/or clavicle, chondrosarcoma of bone, ewing's sarcoma of bone, malignant neoplasm of costal cartilage, malignant neoplasm of costovertebral joint, malignant neoplasm of ribs and/or sternum and/or clavicle, etc

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: Neoplasm, neoplastic bone (periosteum) clavicle ; Neoplasm, neoplastic bone (periosteum) costal cartilage ; Neoplasm, neoplastic bone (periosteum) costovertebral joint ; Neoplasm, neoplastic bone (periosteum) rib ; Neoplasm, neoplastic bone (periosteum) sternum ; Neoplasm, neoplastic bone (periosteum) xiphoid process ; Neoplasm, neoplastic cartilage (articular) (joint) NEC [See Also: Neoplasm, bone] costal ; etc

Table of Neoplasms

The code C41.3 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


Bone Cancer

Cancer that starts in a bone is uncommon. Cancer that has spread to the bone from another part of the body is more common.

There are three types of bone cancer:

  • Osteosarcoma - occurs most often between ages 10 and 19. It is more common in the knee and upper arm.
  • Chondrosarcoma - starts in cartilage, usually after age 40
  • Ewing's sarcoma - occurs most often in children and teens under 19. It is more common in boys than girls.

The most common symptom of bone cancer is pain. Other symptoms vary, depending on the location and size of the cancer. Surgery is often the main treatment for bone cancer. Other treatments may include amputation, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Because bone cancer can come back after treatment, regular follow-up visits are important.
