D28.7 - Benign neoplasm of other specified female genital organs

Version 2023
ICD-10:D28.7
Short Description:Benign neoplasm of other specified female genital organs
Long Description:Benign neoplasm of other specified female genital organs
Status: Valid for Submission
Version:ICD-10-CM 2023
Code Classification:
  • Neoplasms (C00–D48)
    • Benign neoplasms, except benign neuroendocrine tumors (D10-D36)
      • Benign neoplasm of other and unsp female genital organs (D28)

D28.7 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of benign neoplasm of other specified female genital organs. The code is valid during the fiscal year 2023 from October 01, 2022 through September 30, 2023 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.

This code 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 reference this diagnosis code given the correct histological behavior: Neoplasm, neoplastic adnexa (uterine) ; Neoplasm, neoplastic genital organ or tract female NEC specified site NEC ; Neoplasm, neoplastic ligament [See Also: Neoplasm, connective tissue] Mackenrodt's ; Neoplasm, neoplastic Mackenrodt's ligament ; Neoplasm, neoplastic Mullerian duct ; Neoplasm, neoplastic Mullerian duct female ; Neoplasm, neoplastic tubo-ovarian ; etc

Table of Neoplasms

This code is referenced 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.

Patient Education


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.
