2021 ICD-10-CM Code D14.3

Benign neoplasm of bronchus and lung

Version 2021

Not Valid for Submission

ICD-10:D14.3
Short Description:Benign neoplasm of bronchus and lung
Long Description:Benign neoplasm of bronchus and lung

Code Classification

  • Neoplasms (C00–D48)
    • Benign neoplasms, except benign neuroendocrine tumors (D10-D36)
      • Benign neoplasm of middle ear and respiratory system (D14)

D14.3 is a non-specific and non-billable diagnosis code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of benign neoplasm of bronchus and lung. 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.

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: Neoplasm, neoplastic bronchiogenic, bronchogenic (lung) ; Neoplasm, neoplastic bronchiole ; Neoplasm, neoplastic bronchus ; Neoplasm, neoplastic bronchus carina ; Neoplasm, neoplastic bronchus lower lobe of lung ; Neoplasm, neoplastic bronchus main ; Neoplasm, neoplastic bronchus upper lobe of lung ; etc

Specific Coding for Benign neoplasm of bronchus and lung

Non-specific codes like D14.3 require more digits to indicate the appropriate level of specificity. Consider using any of the following ICD-10 codes with a higher level of specificity when coding for benign neoplasm of bronchus and lung:

  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D14.30 for Benign neoplasm of unspecified bronchus and lung
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D14.31 for Benign neoplasm of right bronchus and lung
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D14.32 for Benign neoplasm of left bronchus and lung

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 coding notes and guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more. The following references are applicable to the code D14.3:


Type 1 Excludes

Type 1 Excludes
A type 1 excludes note is a pure excludes note. It means "NOT CODED HERE!" An Excludes1 note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as the code above the Excludes1 note. An Excludes1 is used when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.

Table of Neoplasms

The code D14.3 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

Also called: Benign neoplasms, Noncancerous 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.

Lung Diseases

When you breathe, your lungs take in oxygen from the air and deliver it to the bloodstream. The cells in your body need oxygen to work and grow. During a normal day, you breathe nearly 25,000 times. People with lung disease have difficulty breathing. Millions of people in the U.S. have lung disease. If all types of lung disease are lumped together, it is the number three killer in the United States.

The term lung disease refers to many disorders affecting the lungs, such as asthma, COPD, infections like influenza, pneumonia and tuberculosis, lung cancer, and many other breathing problems. Some lung diseases can lead to respiratory failure.
