Answer:

Answer:

A neoplasm can be of four types based on the cell or tissue being affected. Thus, these can be papilloma, carcinoma, melanoma or adenoma. Cancer can be of different types depending upon the type of cells, organ affected and stage of development.
The E code is used to describe the effects of the treatment or the reaction to any procedure.
Hence, the option (b) is not the correct answer.
The late effects code is used to describe the late effects of a substance; it does not account for treatment procedures.
Hence, the option (c) is not the correct answer.
The comorbidity code is used for the comorbid condition when another condition(s) is present apart from the principle disease.
Thus, the option (d) is also incorrect.
To identify the type of neoplasm the international classification of the disease has formulated the morphology code "M" to ascertain various aspects of neoplasm. After the treatment of neoplasm, the codes shift from "M" to "V."
Hence, the correct answer is Option (a).

Answer:

Answer:

The morphology codes are the system of numbers and alphabets formulated by the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) to identify the type of cancer present and identified from an individual.
The morphology codes are used to assess the type and also the histopathology of the neoplasm. The M codes are written in a tabular list that contains alphanumeric codes to different types of neoplasms. The codes have a specific pattern in which initiates with alphabet M which is continued in four digits, a slash and ends with a single digit.
The morphology codes are expressed as follows:
• M809-M811: Basal cell neoplasms.
• M880: Soft tissue tumors and sarcomas NOS
• M800: Neoplasm NOS
These codes are followed by a slash and a single digit which represents the histopathology of the neoplasm. These are designated as follows:
• /0: Benign
• /1: the neoplasm of uncertain behavior, not identified as benign or malignant, borderline malignancy
• /2: Carcinoma in situ, typically intraepithelial, non-filtrating, noninvasive
• /3: Malignant, at the primary site
• /6: Malignant, secondary site, metastatic site
• /9: Malignant, uncertain of the site whether a primary site or metastatic site.
The morphology code indicates the type of cancer and the histopathology of cancer. The codes also give information on whether the cancer is at the primary site or secondary site, is benign or malignant and so on.

Cancer is the unconstrained growth and proliferation of cells that compete with the healthy cells for nutrition, space and eventually cause the death of normal cells. Cancer can be of different types depending upon the type of cells, organ affected and stage. The spreading of cancer to other places in the body is called metastasis.
The differences between primary and secondary malignancy are as follows:
img Primary malignancy is cancer which is confined to its areas of origin, whereas the secondary malignancy is cancer that has dispersed from its site of origin as has started invading other cells and tissues.
