Valid for Submission
D28.7 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of benign neoplasm of other specified female genital organs. The code D28.7 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 D28.7 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like benign neoplasm of uterine adnexa.
The code D28.7 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: adnexa (uterine) ; genital organ or tract female NEC specified site NEC ; ligament [See Also: Neoplasm, connective tissue] Mackenrodt's ; Mackenrodt's ligament ; Mullerian duct ; Mullerian duct female ; tubo-ovarian ; etc
The Medicare Code Editor (MCE) detects and reports errors in the coding of claims data. The following ICD-10 Code Edits are applicable to this code:
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Benign neoplasm of uterine adnexa
Diagnostic Related Groups - MS-DRG Mapping
|MS-DRG||MS-DRG Title||MCD||Relative Weight|
|742||UTERINE AND ADNEXA PROCEDURES FOR NON-MALIGNANCY WITH CC/MCC||13||1.717|
|743||UTERINE AND ADNEXA PROCEDURES FOR NON-MALIGNANCY WITHOUT CC/MCC||13||1.1323|
The relative weight of a diagnostic related group determines the reimbursement rate based on the severity of a patient's illness and the associated cost of care during hospitalization.

Table of Neoplasms
The code D28.7 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
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.
