    AAPC: Back to School
    We have a patient who has a Seminoma dx. Origionally this is a testicular diagnosis, however, in our case the Seminoma is showing in the neck. What diagnosis wouldyou consider using?

    I read if it is in the Central Nervous system it is a germinoma so I would code a malignant neoplasm of nervous system 192.8.

    If you look up seminoma and germinoma, they both guide you to code it to neoplasm, by site, malignant so I would code the tumor to the neck.
