Diagnostic Confirmation--Prostate: How do we code this field when there is an elevated PSA, no other work-up and there is a clinical diagnosis of adenocarcinoma?
Code the Diagnostic Confirmation field to 5 [positive laboratory test/marker study] to indicate the diagnosis is based upon an abnormal PSA tumor marker if the physician uses the PSA as a basis for diagnosing prostate cancer.
