ICD-10-CM Code D20.0

Benign neoplasm of soft tissue of retroperitoneum

Version 2020 Billable Code Neoplasm Benign

Valid for Submission

D20.0 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of benign neoplasm of soft tissue of retroperitoneum. The code is valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code D20.0 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like 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, etc

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: connective tissue NEC retroperitoneum ; paranephric ; periadrenal (tissue) ; perinephric ; peripancreatic ; perirenal (tissue) ; retrocecal ; etc

Diagnostic Related Groups

The ICD-10 code D20.0 is grouped in the following groups for version MS-DRG V37.0 What are Diagnostic Related Groups?
The Diagnostic Related Groups (DRGs) are a patient classification scheme which provides a means of relating the type of patients a hospital treats. The DRGs divides all possible principal diagnoses into mutually exclusive principal diagnosis areas referred to as Major Diagnostic Categories (MDC).
applicable from 10/01/2019 through 09/30/2020.

  • 394 - OTHER DIGESTIVE SYSTEM DIAGNOSES WITH CC
  • 395 - OTHER DIGESTIVE SYSTEM DIAGNOSES WITHOUT CC/MCC

Table of Neoplasms

The code D20.0 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.

Peritoneal Disorders

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
  • Cancer
  • 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.
