2022 ICD-10-CM Code C76.3

Malignant neoplasm of pelvis

Version 2021

Valid for Submission

ICD-10:C76.3
Short Description:Malignant neoplasm of pelvis
Long Description:Malignant neoplasm of pelvis

Code Classification

  • Neoplasms (C00–D48)
    • Malignant neoplasms of ill-defined, other secondary and unspecified sites (C76-C80)
      • Malignant neoplasm of other and ill-defined sites (C76)

C76.3 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of malignant neoplasm of pelvis. The code C76.3 is valid during the fiscal year 2022 from October 01, 2021 through September 30, 2022 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.

The ICD-10-CM code C76.3 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like adenocarcinoma of pelvis, malignant melanoma of buttock, malignant melanoma of groin, malignant melanoma of perineum, malignant tumor of pelvis , neoplasm of presacral region, etc.

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: buttock NEC ; extrarectal ; fossa (of) ischiorectal ; gluteal region ; groin NEC ; inguinal (region) ; ischiorectal (fossa) ; 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 coding notes and guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more. The following references are applicable to the code C76.3:


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.

Approximate Synonyms

The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:

Table of Neoplasms

The code C76.3 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


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.
