Valid for Submission
D25.9 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of leiomyoma of uterus, unspecified. The code D25.9 is valid during the fiscal year 2022 from October 01, 2021 through September 30, 2022 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code D25.9 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like abnormal uterine bleeding due to uterine fibroid, antepartum hemorrhage with uterine leiomyoma, antepartum hemorrhage with uterine leiomyoma - not delivered, benign metastasizing leiomyoma of uterus, benign neoplasm of uterine cervix , bleeding from female genital tract during pregnancy, etc.
The code D25.9 is applicable to female patients only. It is clinically and virtually impossible to use this code on a non-female patient.
Unspecified diagnosis codes like D25.9 are acceptable when clinical information is unknown or not available about a particular condition. Although a more specific code is preferable, unspecified codes should be used when such codes most accurately reflect what is known about a patient's condition. Specific diagnosis codes should not be used if not supported by the patient's medical record.

Information for Patients
Uterine fibroids are the most common benign tumors in women of childbearing age. Fibroids are made of muscle cells and other tissues that grow in and around the wall of the uterus, or womb. The cause of fibroids is unknown. Risk factors include being African American or being overweight.
Many women with fibroids have no symptoms. If you do have symptoms, they may include
- Heavy or painful periods or bleeding between periods
- Feeling "full" in the lower abdomen
- Urinating often
- Pain during sex
- Lower back pain
- Reproductive problems, such as infertility, multiple miscarriages or early labor
Your health care provider may find fibroids during a gynecological exam or by using imaging tests. Treatment includes drugs that can slow or stop their growth, or surgery. If you have no symptoms, you may not even need treatment. Many women with fibroids can get pregnant naturally. For those who cannot, infertility treatments may help.
