2021 ICD-10-CM Code D30.1

Benign neoplasm of renal pelvis

Version 2021

Not Valid for Submission

D30.1 is a non-specific and non-billable diagnosis code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of benign neoplasm of renal pelvis. The code is not specific and is NOT valid for the year 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. Category or Header define the heading of a category of codes that may be further subdivided by the use of 4th, 5th, 6th or 7th characters.

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: Neoplasm, neoplastic calyx, renal ; Neoplasm, neoplastic junction pelviureteric ; Neoplasm, neoplastic kidney (parenchymal) calyx ; Neoplasm, neoplastic kidney (parenchymal) hilus ; Neoplasm, neoplastic kidney (parenchymal) pelvis ; Neoplasm, neoplastic pelvis, pelvic renal ; Neoplasm, neoplastic renal calyx ; etc

Code Classification

Specific Coding for Benign neoplasm of renal pelvis

Non-specific codes like D30.1 require more digits to indicate the appropriate level of specificity. Consider using any of the following ICD-10 codes with a higher level of specificity when coding for benign neoplasm of renal pelvis:

  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D30.10 for Benign neoplasm of unspecified renal pelvis
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D30.11 for Benign neoplasm of right renal pelvis
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D30.12 for Benign neoplasm of left renal pelvis

Index to Diseases and Injuries

The Index to Diseases and Injuries is an alphabetical listing of medical terms, with each term mapped to one or more ICD-10 code(s). The following references for the code D30.1 are found in the index:

Table of Neoplasms

The code D30.1 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

Also called: Benign neoplasms, Noncancerous 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.

Kidney Diseases

Also called: Renal disease

You have two kidneys, each about the size of your fist. They are near the middle of your back, just below the rib cage. Inside each kidney there are about a million tiny structures called nephrons. They filter your blood. They remove wastes and extra water, which become urine. The urine flows through tubes called ureters. It goes to your bladder, which stores the urine until you go to the bathroom.

Most kidney diseases attack the nephrons. This damage may leave kidneys unable to remove wastes. Causes can include genetic problems, injuries, or medicines. You have a higher risk of kidney disease if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, or a close family member with kidney disease. Chronic kidney disease damages the nephrons slowly over several years. Other kidney problems include

Your doctor can do blood and urine tests to check if you have kidney disease. If your kidneys fail, you will need dialysis or a kidney transplant.
