Malignancy with Metastasis

Metastasis and their primary tumor should be coded in combination because the codes for mets don't specify the primary site, only the site of the mets.

Codes for the mets can be found at:

Metastasis codes:
  • If the site of the mets isn't in the list, use Site NOS, metastatic malignancy to it (also code primary site)
  • If there are mets to multiple sites, then combine all together the primary malignancy code to the codes for the different sites of the mets.
  • If the mets are in the other of a paired organ (e.g. the other kidney), then code both the primary and the metastatic codes, and link them together

Codes for the primary tumors can be found at:

Neoplastic codes:
