    Table of Neoplasms

    The code D39.1 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.

    The Tabular must be reviewed for the complete diagnosis code.

    Information for Patients

    Ovarian Disorders

    The ovaries are part of the female reproductive system. Women have two ovaries, one on each side of the uterus. Each ovary is about the size and shape of an almond.

    The ovaries produce and store a woman's eggs. During ovulation, an ovary releases an egg. If that egg is fertilized by a sperm, a pregnancy can occur. Ovaries also make the female hormones estrogen and progesterone. When a woman goes through menopause, her ovaries stop making those hormones and releasing eggs.

    Problems with the ovaries include

    • Ovarian cancer
    • Ovarian cysts and polycystic ovary syndrome
    • Premature ovarian failure
    • Ovarian torsion, a twisting of the ovary

    • Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (Medical Encyclopedia)
    • Ovarian overproduction of androgens (Medical Encyclopedia)
