Valid for Submission
D41.00 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of neoplasm of uncertain behavior of unspecified kidney. The code D41.00 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 D41.00 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like mesoblastic nephroma or neoplasm of uncertain behavior of kidney.
Unspecified diagnosis codes like D41.00 are acceptable when clinical information is unknown or not available about a particular condition. Although a more specific code is preferable, unspecified codes should be used when such codes most accurately reflect what is known about a patient's condition. Specific diagnosis codes should not be used if not supported by the patient's medical record.
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Mesoblastic nephroma
- Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of kidney

|MS-DRG||MS-DRG Title||MCD||Relative Weight|
|656||KIDNEY AND URETER PROCEDURES FOR NEOPLASM WITH MCC||11||3.2817|
|657||KIDNEY AND URETER PROCEDURES FOR NEOPLASM WITH CC||11||1.9341|
|658||KIDNEY AND URETER PROCEDURES FOR NEOPLASM WITHOUT CC/MCC||11||1.5791|
The relative weight of a diagnostic related group determines the reimbursement rate based on the severity of a patient's illness and the associated cost of care during hospitalization.
Convert D41.00 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code D41.00 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.
Information for Patients
You have two kidneys. They are fist-sized organs on either side of your backbone above your waist. The tubes inside filter and clean your blood, taking out waste products and making urine. Kidney cancer forms in the lining of tiny tubes inside your kidneys.
Kidney cancer becomes more likely as you age. Risk factors include smoking, having certain genetic conditions, and misusing pain medicines for a long time.
You may have no symptoms at first. They may appear as the cancer grows. See your health care provider if you notice
- Blood in your urine
- A lump in your abdomen
- Weight loss for no reason
- Pain in your side that does not go away
- Loss of appetite
Tests to diagnose kidney cancer include blood, urine, and imaging tests. You may also have a biopsy.
Treatment depends on your age, your overall health and how advanced the cancer is. It might include surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation, biologic, or targeted therapies. Biologic therapy boosts your body's own ability to fight cancer. Targeted therapy uses drugs or other substances that attack specific cancer cells with less harm to normal cells.
