    How do you find follicular thyroid cancer under neoplasm table in ICD-9 book

    Thanks for your help. I really appreciate it

    You would go to thryroid, ICD-9 doesn't have follicular listed, it is not that specific. You would use thryroid and then primary, secondary, etc..whichever applies.
