ICD-10-CM Code D28.0

Benign neoplasm of vulva

Version 2020 Billable Code Diagnoses For Females Only Neoplasm Benign

Valid for Submission

D28.0 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of benign neoplasm of vulva. The code is valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code D28.0 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like angiokeratoma of fordyce, angiokeratoma of skin, angiokeratoma of vulva, benign neoplasm of bartholin's gland, benign neoplasm of clitoris, benign neoplasm of labia majora, etc

The code D28.0 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: Bartholin's gland ; clitoris ; fourchette ; labia (skin) ; labia (skin) majora ; labia (skin) minora ; labium (skin) ; etc

Table of Neoplasms

The code D28.0 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.
