Benign neoplasm of penis

Version 2020 Billable Code Diagnoses For Males Only Neoplasm Benign

Valid for Submission

D29.0 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of benign neoplasm of penis. The code is valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code D29.0 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like benign neoplasm of blood vessel of perineum, benign neoplasm of blood vessel of trunk, benign neoplasm of body of penis, benign neoplasm of glans penis, benign neoplasm of penis, benign neoplasm of prepuce, etc

The code D29.0 is applicable to male patients only. It is clinically and virtually impossible to use this code on a non-male patient.

Table of Neoplasms

The code D29.0 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.

Penis Disorders

Problems with the penis can cause pain and affect a man's sexual function and fertility. Penis disorders include

  • Erectile dysfunction - inability to get or keep an erection
  • Priapism - a painful erection that does not go away
  • Peyronie's disease - bending of the penis during an erection due to a hard lump called a plaque
  • Balanitis - inflammation of the skin covering the head of the penis, most often in men and boys who have not been circumcised
  • Penile cancer - a rare form of cancer, highly curable when caught early
