ICD-10-CM Code D26.1

Other benign neoplasm of corpus uteri

Version 2020 Billable Code Diagnoses For Females Only Neoplasm Benign

Valid for Submission

D26.1 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of other benign neoplasm of corpus uteri. The code is valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code D26.1 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like benign endometrial stromal neoplasm, benign neoplasm of body of uterus, benign neoplasm of endometrium, benign neoplasm of fundus uteri, benign neoplasm of isthmus of uterus, benign neoplasm of myometrium, etc

The code D26.1 is applicable to female patients only. It is clinically and virtually impossible to use this code on a non-female patient.

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: corpus uteri ; corpus uteri isthmus ; endometrium (gland) (stroma) ; fundus uterus ; isthmus uteri ; myometrium ; stroma, endometrial ; etc

Table of Neoplasms

The code D26.1 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.

Uterine Diseases

The uterus, or womb, is the place where a baby grows when a woman is pregnant. The first sign of a problem with the uterus may be bleeding between periods or after sex. Causes can include hormones, thyroid problems, fibroids, polyps, cancer, infection, or pregnancy.

Treatment depends on the cause. Sometimes birth control pills treat hormonal imbalances. If a thyroid problem is the cause, treating it may also stop the bleeding. If you have cancer or hyperplasia, an overgrowth of normal cells in the uterus, you may need surgery.

With two other uterine problems, tissue that normally lines the uterus grows where it is not supposed to. In endometriosis, it grows outside the uterus. In adenomyosis, it grows in the uterus's outside walls. Pain medicine may help. Other treatments include hormones and surgery.
