ICD-10-CM also includes a neoplasm table organized much like the neoplasm table in ICD-9-CM. Similar to ICD-9-CM, chapter 2 in the ICD-10-CM tabular is titled "Neoplasms," but the code numbers are different.
In ICD-10-CM, neoplasms are classified primarily by site (anatomic location, topography) and behavior (malignant, benign, carcinoma in situ, uncertain behavior and unspecified).
Tabular List: A chronological list of ICD-10-CM codes divided into chapters based on body system or condition. It is essential to use both the Alphabetic Index and Tabular List when locating and assigning a code.
The Alphabetic IndexThe Alphabetic Index has two parts: • Index to Diseases and Injuries; and • Index to External Causes of Injury. The Alphabetic Index also consists of the Table of Neoplasms and the Table of Drugs and Chemicals.
Unique to neoplasm diagnoses, the solid tissue neoplasm codes are arranged by anatomical site within a table located in the Alphabetic Index of ICD-9-CM, under the word “Neoplasm.” The table consists of six columns from which the correct code may be selected: malignant primary, malignant secondary, malignant Ca in situ ...
A benign tumor is an abnormal but noncancerous collection of cells also called a benign neoplasm. Benign tumors can form anywhere on or in your body, but many don't need treatment.
When coding from the neoplasm table, the term primary refers to the condition as: the main diagnosis.
ICD-10-CM Code for Malignant (primary) neoplasm, unspecified C80. 1.
To properly code a malignant neoplasm, the coder must first determine from the documentation if the neoplasm is a primary malignancy or a metastatic (secondary) malignancy stemming from a primary cancer.
1. First, reference the Main Term in the ICD-10-CM Index to Diseases and Injury for the histological type of neoplasm if it is documented. In this Endometrioid Carcinoma example, the histological type is documented and can be found as a main term in the ICD-10-CM Index to Diseases and Injury. 2.
A primary malignant neoplasm that overlaps two or more contiguous (next to each other) sites should be classified to the subcategory/code .8 ('overlapping lesion'), unless the combination is specifically indexed elsewhere.
All neoplasms are classified in this chapter, whether they are functionally active or not. An additional code from Chapter 4 may be used, to identify functional activity associated with any neoplasm. Morphology [Histology] Chapter 2 classifies neoplasms primarily by site (topography), with broad groupings for behavior, malignant, in situ, benign, ...
The Table of Neoplasms should be used to identify the correct topography code. In a few cases, such as for malignant melanoma and certain neuroendocrine tumors, the morphology (histologic type) is included in the category and codes. Primary malignant neoplasms overlapping site boundaries.
The 2022 edition of ICD-10-CM D10.9 became effective on October 1, 2021.
For multiple neoplasms of the same site that are not contiguous, such as tumors in different quadrants of the same breast, codes for each site should be assigned. Malignant neoplasm of ectopic tissue. Malignant neoplasms of ectopic tissue are to be coded to the site mentioned, e.g., ectopic pancreatic malignant neoplasms are coded to pancreas, ...
The Neoplasm Table gives the code numbers for neoplasm 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. When such descriptors are not present, the reminder of the alphabetical index should be consulted.
Classification of neoplasms is primarily by site ( topography) with broad groupings for behavior, malignant, in situ, benign, etc. The Table of Neoplasms should be used to identify the correct topography code.
All neoplasms are classified in this chapter, whether they are functionally active or not. An additional code from Chapter 4: Endocrine, Nutritional and Metabolic Disease may be used to identify functional activity associated with any neoplasm.
The neoplasm chapter contains the codes for most benign and all malignant neoplasms. Certain benign neoplasms such as prostatic adenomas maybe found in the specific body system chapters. To properly code a neoplasm, it is necessary to determine from the record if the neoplasm is benign, in-situ, malignant or of uncertain histologic behavior.

This is the official exact match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that in all cases where the ICD9 code 210.9 was previously used, D10.9 is the appropriate modern ICD10 code.
