2021 ICD-10-CM Code C79.51

Secondary malignant neoplasm of bone

Version 2021

Valid for Submission

C79.51 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of secondary malignant neoplasm of bone. The code C79.51 is valid during the fiscal year 2021 from October 01, 2020 through September 30, 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.

The ICD-10-CM code C79.51 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like hypopharyngeal tnm finding, lip and oral cavity tnm finding, lip and oral cavity tnm finding, lip and oral cavity tnm finding, m1b: bone , major salivary gland tnm finding, etc.

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: Neoplasm, neoplastic alveolar ridge or process ; Neoplasm, neoplastic alveolar ridge or process lower ; Neoplasm, neoplastic alveolar ridge or process upper ; Neoplasm, neoplastic atlas ; Neoplasm, neoplastic bone (periosteum) ; Neoplasm, neoplastic bone (periosteum) acetabulum ; Neoplasm, neoplastic bone (periosteum) ankle ; etc

Convert C79.51 to ICD-9 Code

The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code C79.51 its ICD-9 equivalent. The approximate mapping means there is not an exact match between the ICD-10 code and the ICD-9 code and the mapped code is not a precise representation of the original code.

Table of Neoplasms

The code C79.51 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:

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.
