Benign lipomatous neoplasm

    2016 2017 2018 2019 Non-Billable/Non-Specific Code
  • D17 should not be used for reimbursement purposes as there are multiple codes below it that contain a greater level of detail.
  • The 2019 edition of ICD-10-CM D17 became effective on October 1, 2018.
  • This is the American ICD-10-CM version of D17 - other international versions of ICD-10 D17 may differ.

    Neoplasms

    Note
    • Functional activity
    • 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, etc. 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
    • 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. 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, unspecified (C25.9).
    Neoplasms
Clinical Information
  • A benign tumor composed of adipose (fatty) tissue. The most common representative of this category is the lipoma.
