2021 ICD-10-CM Code C79.82

Secondary malignant neoplasm of genital organs

Version 2021

Valid for Submission

ICD-10:C79.82
Short Description:Secondary malignant neoplasm of genital organs
Long Description:Secondary malignant neoplasm of genital organs

Code Classification

  • Neoplasms (C00–D48)
    • Malignant neoplasms of ill-defined, other secondary and unspecified sites (C76-C80)
      • Secondary malignant neoplasm of other and unspecified sites (C79)

C79.82 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of secondary malignant neoplasm of genital organs. The code C79.82 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 C79.82 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like epididymis involved by direct extension of malignant neoplasm, gestational trophoblast tnm finding, lesion of clitoris, malignant lymphoma of testis, malignant neoplasm of broad ligament of uterus , malignant neoplasm of clitoris, etc.

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: Neoplasm, neoplastic Bartholin's gland ; Neoplasm, neoplastic broad ligament ; Neoplasm, neoplastic cervix (cervical) (uteri) (uterus) ; Neoplasm, neoplastic cervix (cervical) (uteri) (uterus) canal ; Neoplasm, neoplastic cervix (cervical) (uteri) (uterus) endocervix (canal) (gland) ; Neoplasm, neoplastic cervix (cervical) (uteri) (uterus) exocervix ; Neoplasm, neoplastic cervix (cervical) (uteri) (uterus) external os ; etc

Index to Diseases and Injuries

Table of Neoplasms

The code C79.82 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.
