Does anyone have an ICD-10 code for HPV Positive metastatic squamous cell carcinoma to the cervical lymph nodes? The patient has unknown primary malignancy and I have been searching for the last hour for a dx code.

Thanks In Advance

I would use:
1) C80.1 Malignant (primary) neoplasm, unspecified
2) C77.0 Secondary and unspecified malignant neoplasm of lymph nodes of head, face and neck for the malignant cervical nodes
For the HPV+, I will assume (huge assumption) this was a high risk result following a cervical PAP which would be
3) R87.810 Cervical high risk human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA test positive
PLEASE NOTE: diagnosis #3 should be confirmed with records or the provider. The information you provided (HPV+) is not enough to make this assumption.
