For ICD-10-PCS code assignment, refer to the root operation “excision” since only a portion of the body part (bladder) is removed. The approach is “via natural or artificial opening endoscopic” since the cystoscope is inserted into the urethra. Therefore, the ICD-10-PCS code for TURBT is 0TBB8ZZ.

52224 (Cystourethroscopy, with fulguration [including cryosurgery or laser surgery] or treatment of MINOR [less than 0.5 cm] lesion[s] with or without biopsy) for the minor tumor resection.
Malignant neoplasm of bladder, unspecified C67. 9 is a billable/specific ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes. The 2022 edition of ICD-10-CM C67. 9 became effective on October 1, 2021.
CONCLUSIONS: Larger tumor size (>5 cm) is associated with greater length of stay, reoperation, readmission, and death following TURBT. Patients should be counseled appropriately and likely warrant vigilant observation prior to and following hospital discharge.
52214 is the correct anatomical location (prostatic urethra), but states fulguration, and not resection. 52224 gives the right approach, but according to the 2011 coding companion is for resection of a bladder lesion.
What is transurethral resection of the bladder? Transurethral resection of the bladder is a surgery to remove abnormal tissue (tumour) from the bladder through the urethra. It is also called transurethral resection of bladder tumour, or TURBT. A tumour in the bladder may be benign (not cancer) or malignant (cancer).
Unfortunately, Medicare has also determined that code 52310 cannot be reported for bilateral services.
Definition. Transurethral = through or across the urethra (tube through which urine exits bladder) Incision = making a cut in. Resection = cutting away or removal (some people refer to it as a “scraping”) Bladder Neck = the opening of the bladder where the urethra begins.
ICD-10 code: C67. 2 Malignant neoplasm: Lateral wall of bladder.
A primary or metastatic malignant neoplasm involving the bladder. The bladder is a hollow organ in your lower abdomen that stores urine. Bladder cancer occurs in the lining of the bladder. It is the sixth most common type of cancer in the United States.symptoms include. blood in your urine.
A mass (tumor) that is found on the bladder – the muscular sac in the pelvic region that stores urine – can sometimes be indicative of bladder cancer.

A non-neoplastic or neoplastic disorder affecting the urinary bladder. A representative example of non-neoplastic bladder disorder is bacterial bladder infection. A representative example of neoplastic bladder disorder is bladder carcinoma.
cystitis - inflammation of the bladder, often from an infection. urinary incontinence - loss of bladder control. interstitial cystitis - a chronic problem that causes bladder pain and frequent, urgent urination. bladder cancer.
doctors diagnose bladder diseases using different tests. These include urine tests, x-rays, and an examination of the bladder wall with a scope called a cystoscope. Treatment depends on the cause of the problem. It may include medicines and, in severe cases, surgery.
Disease or disorder of the urinary bladder, the musculomembranous sac in the anterior of the pelvic cavity that serves as a reservoir for urine, which it receives through the ureters and discharges through the urethra.
The 2022 edition of ICD-10-CM N32.9 became effective on October 1, 2021.
As stated above, the most common procedure performed for bladder cancer in the early stages is transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT). For ICD-10-PCS code assignment, refer to the root operation “excision” since only a portion of the body part (bladder) is removed. The approach is “via natural or artificial opening endoscopic” since the cystoscope is inserted into the urethra. Therefore, the ICD-10-PCS code for TURBT is 0TBB8ZZ. If a fulguration is also done, then also assign code 0T5B8ZZ using the root operation “destruction.”
Where the bladder cancer begins determines the type of cancer. Most bladder cancers are caused by transitional cell carcinoma, which begins in the cells that line the bladder walls. Another type is squamous cell carcinoma, which begins in thin, flat cells and is caused by infection and irritation.
Surgery is the best treatment option. The most common procedure used to treat early-stage cancer is transurethral resection of bladder tumor, which is classified to ICD-9-CM code 57.49. A cystoscope is inserted into the bladder through the urethra, and the cancer is removed with a small wire loop.
Segmental cystectomy (57.6) may be performed for cancer that goes deeper into the tissue but is confined to one area of the bladder. Radical cystectomy (57.71) removes the entire bladder and nearby lymph nodes. In men, the prostate gland, seminal vesicles, and a portion of the vas deferens are also removed.
A total cystectomy not documented as radical is classified to code 57.79. Coding and sequencing for bladder cancer are dependent on the physician documentation in the medical record and application of the Official Coding Guidelines for inpatient care.
If cancer originally develops elsewhere and metastasizes to the bladder, then assign code 198.1.
When symptoms do develop, they may include hematuria (urine may appear bright red, dark yellow, or a dark brown, or may appear normal with microscopic blood detected), frequent urination, painful urination, urinary tract infection, and abdominal or back pain. Where the bladder cancer begins determines the type of cancer.
