Reportablility--Breast: Is lobular neoplasia reportable as lobular carcinoma in situ? See Discussion.

Final Aug 21 2015

Reportability/MP/H--Kidney: "Multilocular clear cell renal cell carcinoma." Would this be coded 8310? See discussion.

Final Aug 21 2015

Primary site--Anus/Anal Canal: What site do you code squamous cell carcinoma of the anal verge?

Final Aug 21 2015

MP/H/Histology/neuroendocrine : How should the following histologies with neuroendocrine differentiation be coded?

1.  Bladder - Invasive urothelial carcinoma with neuroendocrine differentiation

2.  Nasopharnyx - Undifferentiated nonkeratinizing nasopharyngeal carcinoma with neuroendocrine differentiation

3.  Ductal carcinoma in situ (with neuroendocrine features) cribriform and solid patterns

See discussion.

Final Aug 21 2015

MP/H/Histology--Lung: Would you code a lung primary of "non-small cell carcinoma with neuroendocrine differentiation" to non-small cell carcinoma (8046/3) or carcinoma with neuroendocrine differentiation (8574/3)? See discussion.

Final Aug 21 2015

MP/H Rules/Multiple primaries--Colon: This is an unusual case of multifocal colon cancer. The case is staged pT4b,N1b. Per our MP rules, this will be 4 separate primaries. Would this be an exception to the rules; if not now, possibly in future versions of the MP rules for colon cancer? See discussion.

First course treatment--Surgical rocedure of other sites: How is this field coded when the patient undergoes a lung wedge resection for a pulmonary nodule that was never definitively or was ambiguously stated to be a metastasis? See Discussion.

Final Jul 31 2015

First course treatment/Hormone Therapy--Lung: How is this field coded when the patient receives Prednisone for a metastatic lung adenocarcinoma? See Discussion.

Final Jul 31 2015

MP/H Rules/Histology--Head & Neck: Please clarify rule H3. The first statement is "Do not code terms that do not appear in the histology description". The second statement is "Do not code...unless the words...appear in the final diagnosis"

One of our pathology labs frequently will state "keratinizing squamous cell" in the microscopic description (histologic description), but only state "squamous cell carcinoma" in the final diagnosis. May we code from the histologic description if it's not in the final diagnosis?

Final Jul 21 2015

Date of diagnosis--Diagnostic confirmation: How are the diagnosis date and diagnostic confirmation coded when the pathology (needle biopsy followed by resection) reports GIST, NOS and the physician subsequently states this is a malignant GIST and treats the patient for a malignancy? See Discussion.
