BILLABLE
Billable Code

| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

C26.1 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of malignant neoplasm of spleen. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code C26 is used to code Gastrointestinal cancer

Gastrointestinal cancer refers to malignant conditions of the gastrointestinal tract (GI tract) and accessory organs of digestion, including the esophagus, stomach, biliary system, pancreas, small intestine, large intestine, rectum and anus. The symptoms relate to the organ affected and can include obstruction (leading to difficulty swallowing or defecating), abnormal bleeding or other associated problems. The diagnosis often requires endoscopy, followed by biopsy of suspicious tissue. The treatment depends on the location of the tumor, as well as the type of cancer cell and whether it has invaded other tissues or spread elsewhere. These factors also determine the prognosis.
