ICD-10-CM Code D29.8

Benign neoplasm of other specified male genital organs

Version 2020 Billable Code Diagnoses For Males Only Neoplasm Benign

Valid for Submission

D29.8 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of benign neoplasm of other specified male genital organs. The code is valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code D29.8 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like benign neoplasm of spermatic cord or benign neoplasm of vas deferens or benign tumor of seminal vesicle or neoplasm of vas deferens or tumor of seminal vesicle.

The code D29.8 is applicable to male patients only. It is clinically and virtually impossible to use this code on a non-male patient.

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: cord (true) (vocal) spermatic ; ejaculatory duct ; genital organ or tract male NEC specified site NEC ; Mullerian duct male ; seminal vesicle ; spermatic cord ; tunica vaginalis ; etc

Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries

The Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries is a list of ICD-10 codes, organized "head to toe" into chapters and sections with guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more. The following references are applicable to the code D29.8:

Inclusion Terms

Inclusion Terms
These terms are the conditions for which that code is to be used. The terms may be synonyms of the code title, or, in the case of "other specified" codes, the terms are a list of the various conditions assigned to that code. The inclusion terms are not necessarily exhaustive. Additional terms found only in the Alphabetic Index may also be assigned to a code.
  • Benign neoplasm of seminal vesicle
  • Benign neoplasm of spermatic cord
  • Benign neoplasm of tunica vaginalis

Code Edits

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:

  • Diagnoses for males only - Medicare Code Editor detects inconsistencies between a patient’s sex and any diagnosis on the patient’s record, this code applies to MALES only .

Synonyms

The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:

  • Benign neoplasm of spermatic cord
  • Benign neoplasm of vas deferens
  • Benign tumor of seminal vesicle
  • Neoplasm of vas deferens
  • Tumor of seminal vesicle

Diagnostic Related Groups

The ICD-10 code D29.8 is grouped in the following groups for version MS-DRG V37.0 What are Diagnostic Related Groups?
The Diagnostic Related Groups (DRGs) are a patient classification scheme which provides a means of relating the type of patients a hospital treats. The DRGs divides all possible principal diagnoses into mutually exclusive principal diagnosis areas referred to as Major Diagnostic Categories (MDC).
applicable from 10/01/2019 through 09/30/2020.

Table of Neoplasms

The code D29.8 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.
