Info: This crucial chapter in the ICD-10 classification is dedicated to the spectrum of conditions characterized by abnormal growth of cells, known as neoplasms. These can range from benign (non-cancerous) growths like moles or fibroids to malignant (cancerous) growths such as lung cancer, breast cancer, or leukemia. Each type of neoplasm has unique characteristics, symptoms, and potential treatment strategies. Treatments often involve a combination of surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, or other targeted therapies. This category is vital for diagnosis, treatment planning, and understanding the global epidemiology of cancerous and non-cancerous growths.
