APPENDIX C
International Classification of Diseases (ICD) Codes for Cancers of Interest

The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) is a system used by physicians and researchers around the world to group related disease entities and procedures for the reporting of statistical information. It is used for the purposes of classifying morbidity and mortality information for statistical purposes, indexing hospital records by disease and operations, reporting diagnosis by physicians, data storage and retrieval, reporting national morbidity and mortality data, and reporting and compiling health care data.

Many of the studies reviewed by the committee use or were written at a time when the Ninth Edition of the classifications (ICD-9) was in place. Accordingly, ICD references in this report use that scheme. The Tenth Edition (ICD-10) began to be implemented in the United States in 1999. It differs from ICD-9 in the level of detail (~8,000 categories versus ~5,000) and nomenclature (alphanumeric versus numeric codes); additions and modifications were also made to some coding rules and the rules for selecting the underlying cause of death (Anderson et al., 2001).

Table C-1 lists the ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes for the various forms of cancer addressed in the report. The listed codes are for malignant neoplasms. In situ neoplasms, benign neoplasms, neoplasms of uncertain behavior, and neoplasms of unspecified behavior have separate codes in both schemes.
