ICD-10-CM Code C58

Malignant neoplasm of placenta

Version 2020 Billable Code Maternity Diagnoses Diagnoses For Females Only Neoplasm Malignant Primary

Valid for Submission

C58 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of malignant neoplasm of placenta. The code is valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code C58 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like choriocarcinoma, choriocarcinoma, choriocarcinoma, choriocarcinoma of placenta, epithelioid trophoblastic tumor, gestational choriocarcinoma, etc

The code C58 is applicable to female patients aged 12 through 55 years inclusive. It is clinically and virtually impossible to use this code on a non-female patient outside the stated age range.

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: fetal membrane or placenta .

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 C58:

Includes

Includes
This note appears immediately under a three character code title to further define, or give examples of, the content of the category.
  • choriocarcinoma NOS
  • chorionepithelioma NOS

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.
  • chorioadenoma destruens D39.2
  • hydatidiform mole NOS O01.9
  • invasive hydatidiform mole D39.2
  • male choriocarcinoma NOS C62.9
  • malignant hydatidiform mole D39.2

Index to Diseases and Injuries

The Index to Diseases and Injuries is an alphabetical listing of medical terms, with each term mapped to one or more ICD-10 code(s). The following references for the code C58 are found in the index:


Code Edits

Table of Neoplasms

The code C58 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


Tumors and Pregnancy

Tumors during pregnancy are rare, but they can happen. Tumors can be either benign or malignant. Benign tumors aren't cancer. Malignant ones are. The most common cancers in pregnancy are breast cancer, cervical cancer, lymphoma, and melanoma. Cancer itself rarely harms the baby, and some cancer treatments are safe during pregnancy. You and your health care provider will work together to find the best treatment. Your options will depend on how far along the pregnancy is, as well as the type, size, and stage of your cancer.

Another type of tumor that women can get is called a gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD). It happens when a fertilized egg doesn't become a fetus. GTD is not always easy to find. It is usually benign, but some types can be malignant. The most common type of GTD is a molar pregnancy. In its early stages, it may look like a normal pregnancy. You should see your health care provider if you have vaginal bleeding (not menstrual bleeding).

Treatment depends on the type of tumor, whether it has spread to other places, and your overall health.
