ICD-10-CM Code C47.5

Malignant neoplasm of peripheral nerves of pelvis

Version 2021 Billable Code Neoplasm Malignant Primary

Valid for Submission

C47.5 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of malignant neoplasm of peripheral nerves of pelvis. The code is valid for the fiscal year 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code C47.5 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like malignant neoplasm of peripheral nerve of pelvis or neoplasm of peripheral nerve of pelvis or primary malignant neoplasm of peripheral nerves of pelvis or primary malignant neoplasm of peripheral nerves of trunk.

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: Neoplasm, neoplastic lumbosacral plexus ; Neoplasm, neoplastic nerve (ganglion) peripheral NEC buttock ; Neoplasm, neoplastic nerve (ganglion) peripheral NEC extrarectal ; Neoplasm, neoplastic nerve (ganglion) peripheral NEC gluteal region ; Neoplasm, neoplastic nerve (ganglion) peripheral NEC groin ; Neoplasm, neoplastic nerve (ganglion) peripheral NEC inguinal (canal) (region) ; Neoplasm, neoplastic nerve (ganglion) peripheral NEC ischiorectal fossa ; etc

Table of Neoplasms

The code C47.5 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

Also called: Carcinoma, Malignancy, Neoplasms, Tumor

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.

Peripheral Nerve Disorders

Also called: Neuritis, Peripheral neuritis, Peripheral neuropathy

Your peripheral nerves are the ones outside your brain and spinal cord. Like static on a telephone line, peripheral nerve disorders distort or interrupt the messages between the brain and the rest of the body.

There are more than 100 kinds of peripheral nerve disorders. They can affect one nerve or many nerves. Some are the result of other diseases, like diabetic nerve problems. Others, like Guillain-Barre syndrome, happen after a virus infection. Still others are from nerve compression, like carpal tunnel syndrome or thoracic outlet syndrome. In some cases, like complex regional pain syndrome and brachial plexus injuries, the problem begins after an injury. Some people are born with peripheral nerve disorders.

Symptoms often start gradually, and then get worse. They include

  • Numbness
  • Pain
  • Burning or tingling
  • Muscle weakness
  • Sensitivity to touch

Treatment aims to treat any underlying problem, reduce pain and control symptoms.
