D41 is a non-specific and non-billable diagnosis code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of neoplasm of uncertain behavior of urinary organs. The code is not specific and is NOT valid for the year 2022 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. Category or Header define the heading of a category of codes that may be further subdivided by the use of 4th, 5th, 6th or 7th characters.

Specific Coding for Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of urinary organs

  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - D41.0 for Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of kidney
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D41.00 for Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of unspecified kidney
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D41.01 for Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of right kidney
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D41.02 for Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of left kidney
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - D41.1 for Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of renal pelvis
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D41.10 for Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of unspecified renal pelvis
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D41.11 for Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of right renal pelvis
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D41.12 for Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of left renal pelvis
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - D41.2 for Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of ureter
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D41.20 for Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of unspecified ureter
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D41.21 for Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of right ureter
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D41.22 for Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of left ureter
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D41.3 for Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of urethra
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D41.4 for Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of bladder
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D41.8 for Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of other specified urinary organs

Information for Patients


Bladder Diseases

The bladder is a hollow organ in your lower abdomen that stores urine. Many conditions can affect your bladder. Some common ones are

Doctors diagnose bladder diseases using different tests. These include urine tests, x-rays, and an examination of the bladder wall with a scope called a cystoscope. Treatment depends on the cause of the problem. It may include medicines and, in severe cases, surgery.

Kidney Diseases

You have two kidneys, each about the size of your fist. They are near the middle of your back, just below the rib cage. Inside each kidney there are about a million tiny structures called nephrons. They filter your blood. They remove wastes and extra water, which become urine. The urine flows through tubes called ureters. It goes to your bladder, which stores the urine until you go to the bathroom.

Most kidney diseases attack the nephrons. This damage may leave kidneys unable to remove wastes. Causes can include genetic problems, injuries, or medicines. You have a higher risk of kidney disease if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, or a close family member with kidney disease. Chronic kidney disease damages the nephrons slowly over several years. Other kidney problems include

Your doctor can do blood and urine tests to check if you have kidney disease. If your kidneys fail, you will need dialysis or a kidney transplant.

The urethra is the tube that allows urine to pass out of the body. In men, it's a long tube that runs through the penis. It also carries semen in men. In women, it's short and is just above the vagina. Urethral problems may happen due to aging, illness, or injury. They include

Urethral problems may cause pain or difficulty passing urine. You may also have bleeding or discharge from the urethra.

Doctors diagnose urethral problems using different tests. These include urine tests, x-rays and an examination of the urethra with a scope called a cystoscope. Treatment depends on the cause of the problem. It may include medicines and, in severe cases, surgery.
