Flashcards in Chapter 5 Neoplasms Deck (29):
1

Grow, bit it remains confined to an area and does not invade surrounding tissue

benign neoplasm

2

Neoplasm invades surrounding tissue or sheds cell that seeds malignancies in other sites

malignancy

3

region or a specific part of the body

Topography

4

what type of cancer is it

Morphology

5

If the morphology is stated,

the coder must locate the morphology of the tumor in the Index to Diseases and Injuries.

6

If the morphology is stated but the physician does not include anatomic site

the coder should locate the morphology of the tumor in the Index to Diseases and Injuries

serous papillary carcinoma - code will say its ovary, can trust bc this cancer only happens in ovaries

7

adenocarcinoma”, “carcinoma”, “cancer”, or any “metastasis

go directly to the Neoplasm table

8

Any other morphology

start in the index until you get familiar with the different morphologies

9

primary malignant neoplasm that overlaps two or more contiguous sites should be classified to

end with .8

10

Metastatic carcinoma of the colon to the lung

-The colon is the primary site
-The lung is the secondary site

11

“A new primary”occurs when

the patient develops cancer a second time and is unrelated to the first cancer site

12

A “recurrence"

is when the original cancer recurs in the same organ

13

-lymphomas
-multiple myeloma
-leukemia

-arise out of lymph tissue
-that originates in bone marrow
-that forms in the blood with proliferation of abnormal leukocytes

are systemic & not isolated to a particular location

14

escape of fluid from blood vessels or lymphatics into the tissues or a cavity

effusion

1. complication
2. cancer

24

Patient is admitted for therapy and develops complication (severe nausea and vomiting)

2. complication (N & V)

25

Screening

the testing for disease in well individuals for early detection and treatment
(screening mammo)

26

Diagnostic examination

-not screening
