ICD-10-CM Code D40.8

Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of other specified male genital organs

Version 2020 Billable Code Diagnoses For Males Only Neoplasm Uncertain Behavior

Valid for Submission

D40.8 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of neoplasm of uncertain behavior of other specified male genital organs. The code is valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code D40.8 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like neoplasm of uncertain behavior of body of penis, neoplasm of uncertain behavior of epididymis, neoplasm of uncertain behavior of glans penis, neoplasm of uncertain behavior of penis, neoplasm of uncertain behavior of prepuce, neoplasm of uncertain behavior of scrotum, etc

The code D40.8 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 apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: cord (true) (vocal) spermatic ; corpus cavernosum ; corpus penis ; ejaculatory duct ; epididymis ; foreskin ; genital organ or tract male NEC specified site NEC ; etc

Table of Neoplasms

The code D40.8 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


Penis Disorders

Problems with the penis can cause pain and affect a man's sexual function and fertility. Penis disorders include

  • Erectile dysfunction - inability to get or keep an erection
  • Priapism - a painful erection that does not go away
  • Peyronie's disease - bending of the penis during an erection due to a hard lump called a plaque
  • Balanitis - inflammation of the skin covering the head of the penis, most often in men and boys who have not been circumcised
  • Penile cancer - a rare form of cancer, highly curable when caught early

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

  • Have had abnormal testicle development
  • Have had an undescended testicle
  • Have a family history of the cancer

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.
