ICD-10-CM Code D16.7

Benign neoplasm of ribs, sternum and clavicle

Version 2021 Billable Code Neoplasm Benign

Valid for Submission

D16.7 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of benign neoplasm of ribs, sternum and clavicle. The code is valid for the fiscal year 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code D16.7 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like benign neoplasm of articular cartilage, benign neoplasm of articular cartilage, benign neoplasm of articular cartilage, benign neoplasm of body of sternum, benign neoplasm of clavicle, benign neoplasm of costal cartilage, etc

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: Neoplasm, neoplastic bone (periosteum) clavicle ; Neoplasm, neoplastic bone (periosteum) costal cartilage ; Neoplasm, neoplastic bone (periosteum) costovertebral joint ; Neoplasm, neoplastic bone (periosteum) rib ; Neoplasm, neoplastic bone (periosteum) sternum ; Neoplasm, neoplastic bone (periosteum) xiphoid process ; Neoplasm, neoplastic cartilage (articular) (joint) NEC [See Also: Neoplasm, bone] costal ; etc

Table of Neoplasms

The code D16.7 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

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.

Bone Diseases

Your bones help you move, give you shape and support your body. They are living tissues that rebuild constantly throughout your life. During childhood and your teens, your body adds new bone faster than it removes old bone. After about age 20, you can lose bone faster than you make bone. To have strong bones when you are young, and to prevent bone loss when you are older, you need to get enough calcium, vitamin D, and exercise. You should also avoid smoking and drinking too much alcohol.

Bone diseases can make bones easy to break. Different kinds of bone problems include

  • Low bone density and osteoporosis, which make your bones weak and more likely to break
  • Osteogenesis imperfecta makes your bones brittle
  • Paget's disease of bone makes them weak
  • Bones can also develop cancer and infections
  • Other bone diseases, which are caused by poor nutrition, genetics, or problems with the rate of bone growth or rebuilding
