ICD-10-CM Code D01.7

Carcinoma in situ of other specified digestive organs

Version 2021 Billable Code Neoplasm CaInSitu

Valid for Submission

D01.7 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of carcinoma in situ of other specified digestive organs. The code is valid for the fiscal year 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code D01.7 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like carcinoma in situ of body of pancreas, carcinoma in situ of head of pancreas, carcinoma in situ of islets of langerhans, carcinoma in situ of pancreas, carcinoma in situ of pancreatic duct, carcinoma in situ of spleen, etc

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: Neoplasm, neoplastic insular tissue (pancreas) ; Neoplasm, neoplastic islands or islets of Langerhans ; Neoplasm, neoplastic Langerhans, islands or islets ; Neoplasm, neoplastic pancreas ; Neoplasm, neoplastic pancreas body ; Neoplasm, neoplastic pancreas duct (of Santorini) (of Wirsung) ; Neoplasm, neoplastic pancreas head ; 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 guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more. The following references are applicable to the code D01.7:

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.
  • Carcinoma in situ of pancreas


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

  • Carcinoma in situ of body of pancreas
  • Carcinoma in situ of head of pancreas
  • Carcinoma in situ of islets of Langerhans
  • Carcinoma in situ of pancreas
  • Carcinoma in situ of pancreatic duct
  • Carcinoma in situ of spleen
  • Carcinoma in situ of tail of pancreas
  • Intraductal papillary mucinous carcinoma in situ of pancreas
  • Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm of pancreas
  • Neoplasm of body of pancreas
  • Neoplasm of head of pancreas
  • Neoplasm of tail of pancreas
  • pTis: Carcinoma in situ, intraepithelial
  • pTis: Carcinoma in situ, invasion of lamina propria
  • Tis: Epithelium only
  • Tis: Epithelium only

Diagnostic Related Groups

The ICD-10 code D01.7 is grouped in the following groups for version MS-DRG V38.0 What are Diagnostic Related Groups?
The Diagnostic Related Groups (DRGs) are a patient classification scheme which provides a means of relating the type of patients a hospital treats. The DRGs divides all possible principal diagnoses into mutually exclusive principal diagnosis areas referred to as Major Diagnostic Categories (MDC).
applicable from 10/01/2020 through 09/30/2021.

Table of Neoplasms

The code D01.7 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


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

  • Blood in your stool
  • Changes in bowel habits
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Unintentional weight loss
  • Heartburn not relieved by antacids
