2021 ICD-10-CM Code D01

Carcinoma in situ of other and unspecified digestive organs

Version 2021

Not Valid for Submission

D01 is a non-specific and non-billable diagnosis code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of carcinoma in situ of other and unspecified digestive organs. The code is not specific and is NOT valid for the year 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. Category or Header define the heading of a category of codes that may be further subdivided by the use of 4th, 5th, 6th or 7th characters.

Unspecified diagnosis codes like D01 are acceptable when clinical information is unknown or not available about a particular condition. Although a more specific code is preferable, unspecified codes should be used when such codes most accurately reflect what is known about a patient's condition. Specific diagnosis codes should not be used if not supported by the patient's medical record.

  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D01.0 for Carcinoma in situ of colon
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D01.1 for Carcinoma in situ of rectosigmoid junction
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D01.2 for Carcinoma in situ of rectum
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D01.3 for Carcinoma in situ of anus and anal canal

  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D01.49 for Carcinoma in situ of other parts of intestine
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D01.5 for Carcinoma in situ of liver, gallbladder and bile ducts
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D01.7 for Carcinoma in situ of other specified digestive organs
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D01.9 for Carcinoma in situ of digestive organ, unspecified

Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries

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.

Digestive Diseases

Also called: Gastrointestinal diseases

When you eat, your body breaks food down to a form it can use to build and nourish cells and provide energy. This process is called digestion.

Your digestive system is a series of hollow organs joined in a long, twisting tube. It runs from your mouth to your anus and includes your esophagus, stomach, and small and large intestines. Your liver, gallbladder and pancreas are also involved. They produce juices to help digestion.

There are many types of digestive disorders. The symptoms vary widely depending on the problem. In general, you should see your doctor if you have
