For tumor diagnosed 2001-2006: Code the Histology field to 8046/3 [non-small cell carcinoma].
For tumors diagnosed 2007 or later, refer to the MP/H rules. If there are still questions about how this type of tumor should be coded, submit a new question to SINQ and include the difficulties you are encountering in applying the MP/H rules.
For cases diagnosed prior to 1/1/01: Code the Histology field to 8010/3 [carcinoma, NOS]. Non-small cell is a generic descriptive term (like bronchogenic).
Non-small cell carcinomas can be large cell, adeno, squamous or other histologies. The pathologist may not be able to tell which type it is. Therefore, code to carcinoma, NOS.
