Question
Primary site-Kidney: In which registry manual/section/page do you find information about how to correctly code the primary site in a patient with renal cell carcinoma in a transplanted kidney? I have been told it is C809 and C649. Please clarify.

Discussion


Answer
Instructions for coding primary site for transplanted organs are no different from instructions for other sites: code the site where the neoplasm originated. In this case, it originated in the kidney, C649.
