radical prostatectomy w/rising PSA

    Default radical prostatectomy w/rising PSA
    Medical Coding Books
    A patient is presenting with a rising PSA (790.93) after prostatectomy in 2007. The physician plans to treat the patient with radiation. Could I use the v58.0, 185, 790.93 or would I need the V58.0, 790.93, V10.46. Any direction would be helpful.

  2. Default
    Use the 185. In our Cancer center, rising PSA is considered grounds for a clinical diagnosis of prostate cancer.
