D41.01 - Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of right kidney

Version 2023
ICD-10:D41.01
Short Description:Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of right kidney
Long Description:Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of right kidney
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 urinary organs (D41)

D41.01 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of neoplasm of uncertain behavior of right kidney. The code is valid during the fiscal year 2023 from October 01, 2022 through September 30, 2023 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms reference the parent code D41.0 of the current diagnosis code given the correct histological behavior: Neoplasm, neoplastic kidney (parenchymal) or Neoplasm, neoplastic parenchyma, kidney or Neoplasm, neoplastic renal or Neoplasm, neoplastic renal parenchyma .

Approximate Synonyms

Table of Neoplasms

The parent code D41.0 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


Kidney Cancer

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:

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.
