D40.11 - Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of right testis

Version 2023
ICD-10:D40.11
Short Description:Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of right testis
Long Description:Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of right testis
Status: Valid for Submission
Version:ICD-10-CM 2023
Code Classification:
  • Neoplasms (C00–D48)
    • Neoplasms of uncertain behavior, polycythemia vera and myelodysplastic syndromes (D37-D48)
      • Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of male genital organs (D40)

D40.11 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of neoplasm of uncertain behavior of right testis. The code is valid during the fiscal year 2023 from October 01, 2022 through September 30, 2023 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.

This code is applicable to male patients only. It is clinically and virtually impossible to use this code on a non-male patient.

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms reference the parent code D40.1 of the current diagnosis code given the correct histological behavior: Neoplasm, neoplastic testis, testes ; Neoplasm, neoplastic testis, testes descended ; Neoplasm, neoplastic testis, testes ectopic ; Neoplasm, neoplastic testis, testes retained ; Neoplasm, neoplastic testis, testes scrotal ; Neoplasm, neoplastic testis, testes undescended ; Neoplasm, neoplastic testis, testes unspecified whether descended or undescended ; etc

Approximate Synonyms

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

Approximate Flag - The approximate mapping means there is not an exact match between the ICD-10 and ICD-9 codes and the mapped code is not a precise representation of the original code.

Table of Neoplasms

The parent code D40.1 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.

Patient Education


Testicular Cancer

Testicles, or testes, make male hormones and sperm. They are two egg-shaped organs inside the scrotum, the loose sac of skin behind the penis. You can get cancer in one or both testicles.

Testicular cancer mainly affects young men between the ages of 20 and 39. It is also more common in men who:

Symptoms include pain, swelling, or lumps in your testicles or groin area. Doctors use a physical exam, lab tests, imaging tests, and a biopsy to diagnose testicular cancer. Most cases can be treated, especially if found early. Treatment options include surgery, radiation, and/or chemotherapy. Regular exams after treatment are important.

Treatments may also cause infertility. If you may want children later on, you should consider sperm banking before treatment.
