ICD-10-CM Code M84.533

Pathological fracture in neoplastic disease, right radius

Version 2020 Non-Billable Code

Not Valid for Submission

M84.533 is a "header" nonspecific and non-billable code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of pathological fracture in neoplastic disease, right radius. The code is NOT valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.

  • M84.533A - ... initial encounter for fracture
  • M84.533D - ... subsequent encounter for fracture with routine healing
  • M84.533G - ... subsequent encounter for fracture with delayed healing
  • M84.533K - ... subsequent encounter for fracture with nonunion
  • M84.533P - ... subsequent encounter for fracture with malunion
  • M84.533S - ... sequela

Information for Patients


Arm Injuries and Disorders

Of the 206 bones in your body, three of them are in your arm: the humerus, radius, and ulna. Your arms are also made up of muscles, joints, tendons, and other connective tissue. Injuries to any of these parts of the arm can occur during sports, a fall, or an accident.

Types of arm injuries include

  • Tendinitis and bursitis
  • Sprains
  • Dislocations
  • Broken bones
  • Nerve problems
  • Osteoarthritis

You may also have problems or injure specific parts of your arm, such as your hand, wrist, elbow, or shoulder.

Fractures

A fracture is a break, usually in a bone. If the broken bone punctures the skin, it is called an open or compound fracture. Fractures commonly happen because of car accidents, falls, or sports injuries. Other causes are low bone density and osteoporosis, which cause weakening of the bones. Overuse can cause stress fractures, which are very small cracks in the bone.

Symptoms of a fracture are

  • Intense pain
  • Deformity - the limb looks out of place
  • Swelling, bruising, or tenderness around the injury
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Problems moving a limb

You need to get medical care right away for any fracture. An x-ray can tell if your bone is broken. You may need to wear a cast or splint. Sometimes you need surgery to put in plates, pins or screws to keep the bone in place.
