ICD-10-CM Code D39.0

Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of uterus

Version 2020 Billable Code Diagnoses For Females Only Neoplasm Uncertain Behavior

Valid for Submission

D39.0 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of neoplasm of uncertain behavior of uterus. The code is valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code D39.0 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like endometrial stromal tumor, intravenous leiomyomatosis, neoplasm of exocervix, neoplasm of isthmus of uterus, neoplasm of uncertain behavior of body of uterus, neoplasm of uncertain behavior of endocervix, etc

The code D39.0 is applicable to female patients only. It is clinically and virtually impossible to use this code on a non-female patient.

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: cervix (cervical) (uteri) (uterus) ; cervix (cervical) (uteri) (uterus) canal ; cervix (cervical) (uteri) (uterus) endocervix (canal) (gland) ; cervix (cervical) (uteri) (uterus) exocervix ; cervix (cervical) (uteri) (uterus) external os ; cervix (cervical) (uteri) (uterus) internal os ; cervix (cervical) (uteri) (uterus) nabothian gland ; etc

Table of Neoplasms

The code D39.0 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


Uterine Diseases

The uterus, or womb, is the place where a baby grows when a woman is pregnant. The first sign of a problem with the uterus may be bleeding between periods or after sex. Causes can include hormones, thyroid problems, fibroids, polyps, cancer, infection, or pregnancy.

Treatment depends on the cause. Sometimes birth control pills treat hormonal imbalances. If a thyroid problem is the cause, treating it may also stop the bleeding. If you have cancer or hyperplasia, an overgrowth of normal cells in the uterus, you may need surgery.

With two other uterine problems, tissue that normally lines the uterus grows where it is not supposed to. In endometriosis, it grows outside the uterus. In adenomyosis, it grows in the uterus's outside walls. Pain medicine may help. Other treatments include hormones and surgery.
