ICD-10-CM Code D10.7

Benign neoplasm of hypopharynx

Version 2020 Billable Code Neoplasm Benign

Valid for Submission

D10.7 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of benign neoplasm of hypopharynx. The code is valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code D10.7 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like benign neoplasm of aryepiglottic fold, benign neoplasm of arytenoid fold, benign neoplasm of hypopharyngeal aspect of interarytenoid fold, benign neoplasm of hypopharynx, benign neoplasm of postcricoid region, benign neoplasm of posterior hypopharyngeal wall, etc

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: aryepiglottic fold ; aryepiglottic fold hypopharyngeal aspect ; aryepiglottic fold marginal zone ; cricoid ; cricopharynx ; fossa (of) piriform ; fossa (of) pyriform ; etc

Table of Neoplasms

The code D10.7 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


Benign Tumors

Tumors are abnormal growths in your body. They can be either benign or malignant. Benign tumors aren't cancer. Malignant ones are. Benign tumors grow only in one place. They cannot spread or invade other parts of your body. Even so, they can be dangerous if they press on vital organs, such as your brain.

Tumors are made up of extra cells. Normally, cells grow and divide to form new cells as your body needs them. When cells grow old, they die, and new cells take their place. Sometimes, this process goes wrong. New cells form when your body does not need them, and old cells do not die when they should. These extra cells can divide without stopping and may form tumor.

Treatment often involves surgery. Benign tumors usually don't grow back.

Throat Disorders

Your throat is a tube that carries food to your esophagus and air to your windpipe and larynx. The technical name for your throat is the pharynx.

Throat problems are common. You've probably had a sore throat. The cause is usually a viral infection, but other causes include allergies, infection with strep bacteria or the leaking of stomach acids back up into the esophagus, called GERD.

Other problems that affect the throat include

  • Tonsillitis - inflammation of the tonsils
  • Cancer
  • Croup - inflammation, usually in small children, which causes a barking cough
  • Laryngitis - swelling of the voice box, which can cause a hoarse voice or loss of voice

Most throat problems are minor and go away on their own. Treatments, when needed, depend on the problem.
