The ICD-10-CM code S20.02XD might also be used to specify conditions or terms like contusion of breast, contusion of left breast or injury of left breast. The code is exempt from present on admission (POA) reporting for inpatient admissions to general acute care hospitals.
S20.02XD is a subsequent encounter code, includes a 7th character and should be used after the patient has completed active treatment for a condition like contusion of left breast. According to ICD-10-CM Guidelines a "subsequent encounter" occurs when the patient is receiving routine care for the condition during the healing or recovery phase of treatment. Subsequent diagnosis codes are appropriate during the recovery phase, no matter how many times the patient has seen the provider for this condition. If the provider needs to adjust the patient's care plan due to a setback or other complication, the encounter becomes active again.
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Contusion of breast
- Contusion of left breast
- Injury of left breast

Information for Patients
Also called: Contusion, Ecchymoses
A bruise is a mark on your skin caused by blood trapped under the surface. It happens when an injury crushes small blood vessels but does not break the skin. Those vessels break open and leak blood under the skin.
Bruises are often painful and swollen. You can get skin, muscle and bone bruises. Bone bruises are the most serious.
It can take months for a bruise to fade, but most last about two weeks. They start off a reddish color, and then turn bluish-purple and greenish-yellow before returning to normal. To reduce bruising, ice the injured area and elevate it above your heart. See your health care provider if you seem to bruise for no reason, or if the bruise appears to be infected.
