This article outlines the causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and ICD 10 CM codes for Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma/ICD 10 codes for NHL.
Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL) ICD 10 Causes
Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma ICD 10 (ICD 10 NL) can be diagnosed when there is a change or mutation in DNA of a type of white blood cell called lymphocyte, but the exact reason for this is unknown. The mutation changes the DNA and without the basic instructions the cells continue to grow.
This causes them to multiply. The cells begin to multiply in one or more lymph nodes in a certain area of the body such as the neck, the armpit or the groin. Over time, the cells can spread to other parts of the body such as the bone marrow, spleen, liver, skin, lungs, stomach and the brain. In some cases, non-Hodgkins lymphoma begins to grow in another organ, begins in one lymph node and spreads to another organ.
Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL) ICD 10 Symptoms
Signs and symptoms of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma ICD 10 (ICD 10 NHL) include:
- swelling of lymph nodes in the neck
- abdominal pain
- chest pain
- difficulty breathing
- persistent fatigue
- night sweats
- undiagnosed weight loss
Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is not infectious and is not thought to cause in the family but the risk may be increased if a first-degree relative, such as a parent or sibling, has lymphoma. The cause and initial mutation that causes non-Hodgkin lymph cancer is unknown, but a number of factors can increase the risk of the disease. The disease can arise at any age, but about a third of cases are diagnosed in people under age 75 and is more common in men than women.
Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL) ICD 10 Diagnosis
There are a number of tests that can be used to diagnose Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma ICD 10 (ICD 10 NL). A physical examination is used to check the size and condition of the lymph nodes. An enlarged liver or spleen can also be detected during the physical examination.
The lymph nodes can swell over time as the body fights infections. The doctor may order blood or urine tests to determine which type of infection the body is fighting. Imaging tests such as the following can help the doctor find tumors or cancer stages: X-rays, CT scans, MRI and PET scans.
A bone marrow biopsy can help the doctor determine if the NHL has spread. A biopsy removes part of the lymph node for testing. This allows the cancer to be more accurately identified.
Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL) ICD 10 Treatments
Traditional treatments for Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma ICD 10 (ICD 10 NHL) include chemotherapy, radiotherapy and stem cell transplants. The most common chemotherapy used in NHL is r-chopped therapy with four drugs: cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisone and rituximab. The development of immunotherapy is also used in the treatment of Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma ICD 10 (ICD 10 NHL) .
When participants receive stem cell transplants, they can develop a transplant disease. Compared to placebo, which treats immune-mediated inflammation and autoimmunity after transplantation, mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) can reduce mortality for all causes and are used for therapeutic reasons.
There is evidence that for prophylactic reasons, MSCs can lead to a small difference in overall mortality, relapse into malignant diseases, and incidence of acute GVHD. There is also evidence that they could reduce the incidence of chronic GVHD. Therapeutic use of MScs may increase full response to acute and chronic GHD, but the evidence is uncertain.
Platelet transfusions are often necessary for those who receive chemotherapy or undergo stem cell transplants and are at high risk of bleeding. The evidence suggests that therapeutic platelet transfusion leads to a large increase in the number of people having at least one significant bleeding event, and it also leads to a large reduction in the number of platelet transplants. Compared to therapeutic non-prophylactic platelet transfusions and prophylactic agents, platelet transfers have a little difference in mortality from secondary bleeding and result in a slight decrease in the number of days significant bleeding occurs.
It is unclear whether aerobic exercise, as a supplement to standard treatment for adult patients with hematological malignancies, is effective in reducing anxiety without serious side effects. Aerobic exercise leads to small differences in mortality, quality of life or physical function. It can lead to a slight reduction in depression and reduced fatigue.
