DX CODE FOR BLADDER MASS

SuperCoder Answered Tue 24th of April, 2012 18:13:44 PM

Based on index entry for “Mass, specified organ, NEC – see Disease of specified organ or site” and then entry for “Disease, bladder 596.9/specified NEC 596.89,” the options appear to be 596.9 (Unspecified disorder of bladder) or 596.89 (Other specified disorders of bladder).
For the sake of comparison, the index points to unspecified code 593.9 (unspecified disorder of kidney and ureter) for Mass, kidney.
