D20.0 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of benign neoplasm of soft tissue of retroperitoneum. The code is valid during the fiscal year 2023 from October 01, 2022 through September 30, 2023 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms reference this diagnosis code given the correct histological behavior: Neoplasm, neoplastic connective tissue NEC retroperitoneum ; Neoplasm, neoplastic paranephric ; Neoplasm, neoplastic periadrenal (tissue) ; Neoplasm, neoplastic perinephric ; Neoplasm, neoplastic peripancreatic ; Neoplasm, neoplastic perirenal (tissue) ; Neoplasm, neoplastic retrocecal ; etc
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Benign fibrohistiocytic neoplasm of retroperitoneum
- Benign neoplasm of periadrenal tissue
- Benign neoplasm of perinephric tissue
- Benign neoplasm of perirenal tissue
- Benign neoplasm of peritoneum and retroperitoneum
- Benign neoplasm of retrocecal tissue
- Benign neoplasm of retroperitoneum
- Benign teratoma of retroperitoneum
- Neoplasm of periadrenal tissue
- Neoplasm of perirenal tissue
- Neoplasm of retrocecal tissue
- Tumor of peritoneum and retroperitoneum

Table of Neoplasms
This code is referenced 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.

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.

Your peritoneum is the tissue that lines your abdominal wall and covers most of the organs in your abdomen. A liquid, peritoneal fluid, lubricates the surface of this tissue.
Disorders of the peritoneum are not common. They include:
- Peritonitis - an inflammation of the peritoneum
- Complications from peritoneal dialysis
Your doctor may use imaging tests or lab tests to analyze the peritoneal fluid to diagnose the problem. Treatment of peritoneal disorders depends on the cause.
