2021 ICD-10-CM Code D36.0

Benign neoplasm of lymph nodes

Version 2021
Billable Code
MS-DRG Mapping
Neoplasm Benign

Valid for Submission

D36.0 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of benign neoplasm of lymph nodes. The code D36.0 is valid during the fiscal year 2021 from October 01, 2020 through September 30, 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.

The ICD-10-CM code D36.0 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like angiofollicular lymph node hyperplasia, angiofollicular lymph node hyperplasia, angiofollicular lymph node hyperplasia, angiofollicular lymph node hyperplasia, hyaline-vascular type, angiofollicular lymph node hyperplasia, plasma cell type , benign neoplasm of axillary lymph nodes, etc.

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: Neoplasm, neoplastic lymph, lymphatic channel NEC gland (secondary) ; Neoplasm, neoplastic lymph, lymphatic channel NEC gland (secondary) abdominal ; Neoplasm, neoplastic lymph, lymphatic channel NEC gland (secondary) aortic ; Neoplasm, neoplastic lymph, lymphatic channel NEC gland (secondary) arm ; Neoplasm, neoplastic lymph, lymphatic channel NEC gland (secondary) auricular (anterior) (posterior) ; Neoplasm, neoplastic lymph, lymphatic channel NEC gland (secondary) axilla, axillary ; Neoplasm, neoplastic lymph, lymphatic channel NEC gland (secondary) brachial ; etc

Code Classification

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 D36.0:


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.

Approximate Synonyms

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

Table of Neoplasms

The code D36.0 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

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.

Lymphatic Diseases

The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs. It is made up of

Your bone marrow and thymus produce the cells in lymph. They are part of the system, too.

The lymphatic system clears away infection and keeps your body fluids in balance. If it's not working properly, fluid builds in your tissues and causes swelling, called lymphedema. Other lymphatic system problems can include infections, blockage, and cancer.
