NOTE: Cases with these codes should be screened as registry time allows. These are neoplasm-related secondary conditions for which there should also be a primary diagnosis of a reportable neoplasm. Experience in the SEER registries has shown that using the supplementary list increases casefinding for benign brain and CNS, hematopoietic neoplasms, and other reportable diseases.

The following codes are associated with the paraneoplastic syndrome. Paraneoplastic syndrome by itself is not cancer. It’s a disease or symptom that is the consequence of cancer but is not due to the local presence of cancer cells. A paraneoplastic syndrome may be the first sign of cancer. These codes have been removed from the supplemental list and are now in their own list.
