The Fiscal Year 2007 Casefinding List list is intended to assist in reportable neoplasm casefinding activities that are performed in casefinding sources that use ICD-9-CM* (modified October 2006) codes to codify the diagnoses. Codes and/or terms that have new malignant behavior codes in ICD-O-3 have the ICD-O-3 code placed in parentheses following the terms.

238.0 - 238.9 Neoplasms of uncertain behavior (screen for reportable- by-agreement tumors)
239.0 - 239.9 Neoplasms of unspecified behavior (screen for incorrectly coded malignancies or reportable-by-agreement tumors)

Please note:

  • Prostatic Intraepithelial Neoplasia (PIN III) M-8148/2 will NOT be collected by SEER registries.
  • Pilocytic/juvenile astrocytoma M-9421 which moves from /3 to /1 will CONTINUE to be collected as a /3 in SEER registries.
  • Borderline cystadenomas M-8442, 8451, 8462, 8472, 8473, of the ovaries which move from /3 to /1 will NOT be collected as of 1/1/2001 and previous cases will continue to have to be submitted in SEER registries.
  • The World Health Organization (WHO) diagnosis "B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma" is coded as 9823/3, and cross-referenced to 9670/3, malignant lymphoma, small B lymphocytic. If this WHO term is diagnosed in blood or bone marrow, code 9823/3; if diagnosed in tissue, lymph nodes or any organ in combination with blood or bone marrow, code 9670/3.
