ICD-10-CM Code D49.0

Neoplasm of unspecified behavior of digestive system

Version 2020 Billable Code Neoplasm Unspecified Behavior

Valid for Submission

D49.0 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of neoplasm of unspecified behavior of digestive system. The code is valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code D49.0 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like acute splenic tumor, ampulla of vater surgical margin, involved by tumor, anal, deep radial surgical margin involved by tumor, anal, distal surgical margin involved by tumor, anal, proximal surgical margin involved by tumor, appendix with tumor involvement, with perforation not at tumor, etc

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: adenoid (pharynx) (tissue) ; alimentary canal or tract NEC ; alveolar ; alveolar mucosa ; alveolar mucosa lower ; alveolar mucosa upper ; alveolar ridge or process mucosa ; etc

Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries

The Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries is a list of ICD-10 codes, organized "head to toe" into chapters and sections with guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more. The following references are applicable to the code D49.0:

Type 1 Excludes

Type 1 Excludes
A type 1 excludes note is a pure excludes note. It means "NOT CODED HERE!" An Excludes1 note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as the code above the Excludes1 note. An Excludes1 is used when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.
  • neoplasm of unspecified behavior of margin of anus D49.2
  • neoplasm of unspecified behavior of perianal skin D49.2
  • neoplasm of unspecified behavior of skin of anus D49.2

Diagnostic Related Groups

The ICD-10 code D49.0 is grouped in the following groups for version MS-DRG V37.0 What are Diagnostic Related Groups?
The Diagnostic Related Groups (DRGs) are a patient classification scheme which provides a means of relating the type of patients a hospital treats. The DRGs divides all possible principal diagnoses into mutually exclusive principal diagnosis areas referred to as Major Diagnostic Categories (MDC).

Table of Neoplasms

The code D49.0 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


Digestive Diseases

When you eat, your body breaks food down to a form it can use to build and nourish cells and provide energy. This process is called digestion.

Your digestive system is a series of hollow organs joined in a long, twisting tube. It runs from your mouth to your anus and includes your esophagus, stomach, and small and large intestines. Your liver, gallbladder and pancreas are also involved. They produce juices to help digestion.

There are many types of digestive disorders. The symptoms vary widely depending on the problem. In general, you should see your doctor if you have

  • Blood in your stool
  • Changes in bowel habits
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Unintentional weight loss
  • Heartburn not relieved by antacids
