2022 ICD-10-CM Code D39.11
Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of right ovary

Version 2022
ICD-10:D39.11
Short Description:Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of right ovary
Long Description:Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of right ovary
Status: Valid for Submission

Code Classification

  • Neoplasms (C00–D48)
    • Neoplasms of uncertain behavior, polycythemia vera and myelodysplastic syndromes (D37-D48)
      • Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of female genital organs (D39)

D39.11 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of neoplasm of uncertain behavior of right ovary. The code D39.11 is valid during the fiscal year 2022 from October 01, 2021 through September 30, 2022 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.

The ICD-10-CM code D39.11 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like bilateral neoplasm of uncertain behavior of ovaries, neoplasm of low malignant potential behavior of ovary, neoplasm of low malignant potential behavior of right ovary, neoplasm of uncertain behavior of left ovary, neoplasm of uncertain behavior of ovary , neoplasm of uncertain behavior of ovary, etc.

The code D39.11 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 reference the parent code D39.1 of the current diagnosis code given the correct histological behavior: corpus or corpus albicans or ovary .

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:

Approximate Synonyms

The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code D39.11 its ICD-9 equivalent. The approximate mapping means there is not an exact match between the ICD-10 code and the ICD-9 code and the mapped code is not a precise representation of the original code.

Table of Neoplasms

The parent code D39.1 of the current diagnosis code is referenced 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.

Ovarian Disorders

The ovaries are part of the female reproductive system. Women have two ovaries, one on each side of the uterus. Each ovary is about the size and shape of an almond.

The ovaries produce and store a woman's eggs. During ovulation, an ovary releases an egg. If that egg is fertilized by a sperm, a pregnancy can occur. Ovaries also make the female hormones estrogen and progesterone. When a woman goes through menopause, her ovaries stop making those hormones and releasing eggs.

Problems with the ovaries include
