Hello Annette

Hope you’re doing well!

 

Thank you for your question

 

As per ICD-10 CM guidelines, physician or any qualified health care practitioner is accountable for establishing the patient’s diagnosis. Only the definitive diagnosis needs to be coded; but, since there is no definite diagnosis by the provider in the above presented documentation, you are advised to report the diagnosis as D49.59 (Neoplasm of unspecified behavior of other genitourinary organ)

 

Note: For more appropriate ICD-10 code, kindly provide us with some brief outcome/result of your pathology report.

 

Hope that helps!

Thanks
