Carcinoma in situ of esophagus

Version 2021

Valid for Submission

ICD-10:D00.1
Short Description:Carcinoma in situ of esophagus
Long Description:Carcinoma in situ of esophagus

Code Classification

  • Neoplasms (C00–D48)
    • In situ neoplasms (D00-D09)
      • Carcinoma in situ of oral cavity, esophagus and stomach (D00)

D00.1 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of carcinoma in situ of esophagus. The code D00.1 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 D00.1 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like adenocarcinoma in situ of esophagus, carcinoma in situ of abdominal part of esophagus, carcinoma in situ of cervical esophagus, carcinoma in situ of esophagus, carcinoma in situ of lower third of esophagus , carcinoma in situ of middle third of esophagus, etc.

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: esophagus ; esophagus abdominal ; esophagus cervical ; esophagus distal (third) ; esophagus lower (third) ; esophagus middle (third) ; esophagus proximal (third) ; etc

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 D00.1 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


Esophageal Cancer

The esophagus is a hollow tube that carries food and liquids from your throat to your stomach. Early esophageal cancer usually does not cause symptoms. Later, you may have symptoms such as

You're at greater risk for getting esophageal cancer if you smoke, drink heavily, or have acid reflux. Your risk also goes up as you age

Your doctor uses imaging tests and a biopsy to diagnose esophageal cancer. Treatments include surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. You might also need nutritional support, since the cancer or treatment may make it hard to swallow.
