ICD-10-CM Code D33.0

Benign neoplasm of brain, supratentorial

Version 2020 Billable Code Neoplasm Benign

Valid for Submission

D33.0 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of benign neoplasm of brain, supratentorial. The code is valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code D33.0 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like benign cerebral tumor, benign neoplasm of brain, supratentorial, benign neoplasm of cerebral ventricle, benign neoplasm of frontal lobe, benign neoplasm of occipital lobe, benign neoplasm of parietal lobe, etc

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: basal ganglia ; brain NEC basal ganglia ; brain NEC cerebrum ; brain NEC corpus striatum ; brain NEC cortex (cerebral) ; brain NEC frontal lobe ; brain NEC globus pallidus ; 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 D33.0:

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 cerebral ventricle
  • Benign neoplasm of cerebrum
  • Benign neoplasm of frontal lobe
  • Benign neoplasm of occipital lobe
  • Benign neoplasm of parietal lobe
  • Benign neoplasm of temporal lobe

Type 1 Excludes

Type 1 Excludes
A type 1 excludes note is a pure excludes note. It means "NOT CODED HERE!" An Excludes1 note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as the code above the Excludes1 note. An Excludes1 is used when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.
  • benign neoplasm of fourth ventricle D33.1

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 D33.0 are found in the index:

Table of Neoplasms

The code D33.0 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.

Brain Diseases

The brain is the control center of the body. It controls thoughts, memory, speech, and movement. It regulates the function of many organs. When the brain is healthy, it works quickly and automatically. However, when problems occur, the results can be devastating.

Inflammation in the brain can lead to problems such as vision loss, weakness and paralysis. Loss of brain cells, which happens if you suffer a stroke, can affect your ability to think clearly. Brain tumors can also press on nerves and affect brain function. Some brain diseases are genetic. And we do not know what causes some brain diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease.

The symptoms of brain diseases vary widely depending on the specific problem. In some cases, damage is permanent. In other cases, treatments such as surgery, medicines, or physical therapy can correct the source of the problem or improve symptoms.
