ICD-10-CM Code D13.5

Benign neoplasm of extrahepatic bile ducts

Version 2020 Billable Code Neoplasm Benign

Valid for Submission

D13.5 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of benign neoplasm of extrahepatic bile ducts. The code is valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code D13.5 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like adenoma of ampulla of vater, adenoma of duodenum, adenoma of pancreas, adenoma of small intestine, adenomyoma of gallbladder, benign neoplasm of ampulla of vater, etc

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: ampulla of Vater ; bile or biliary (tract) ; bile or biliary (tract) duct or passage (common) (cystic) (extrahepatic) ; bile or biliary (tract) duct or passage (common) (cystic) (extrahepatic) intrahepatic and extrahepatic ; choledochal duct ; common (bile) duct ; cystic (bile) duct (common) ; etc

Table of Neoplasms

The code D13.5 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.

Bile Duct Diseases

Your liver makes a digestive juice called bile. Your gallbladder stores it between meals. When you eat, your gallbladder pushes the bile into tubes called bile ducts. They carry the bile to your small intestine. The bile helps break down fat. It also helps the liver get rid of toxins and wastes.

Different diseases can block the bile ducts and cause a problem with the flow of bile:

  • Gallstones, which can increase pressure in the gallbladder and cause a gallbladder attack. The pain usually lasts from one to several hours.
  • Cancer
  • Infections
  • Birth defects, such as biliary atresia. It is the most common reason for liver transplants in children in the United States.
  • Inflammation, which can cause scarring. Over time, this can lead to liver failure.
