Hi I'm needing help trying to find the most appropriate ICD-10 code for CHEK2 Mutation. It's described as a mutation with hereditary breast cancer which my closer answer has lead me to Z15.01, however upon researching, it states that the risk of breast cancer is less than that associated with BRCA1 or BRCA2 so I'm not quite sure Z15.01 would be correct. I know the key term here is hereditary so I'm not sure if this would be Z84.81. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I would agree with Z15.01 since it is a personal genetic susceptibility to malignant neoplasm of breast. Z84.81 would account for a family member who has the mutation.
