Metastatic Tumor Coding - Primary vs. Secondary Cancer
 
03:44
Metastatic Tumor Coding - Defining Primary vs. Secondary Cancer http://www.cco.us/medical-coding-training-certification-products-yt Q: Can someone have a metastatic tumor without having a primary cancer? A: That’s goes back to the question, metastatic breast, that’s all they say in the documentation. So, what do we need to translate that is? How do we code that? The answer is “no.” A metastatic tumor is always caused by cancer cells from another part of the body. So, if you say “metastatic breast” then we know that that cancer came from someplace else, right? A metastatic tumor is always caused by cancer cells from another body part. It goes on to say, when that metastatic tumor is found first, the primary cancer can also be found, because they’ll look under the microscope and they’ll say, “This is breast tissue, breast cells, cancer cells in the bone,” so the primary site would be the breast and the secondary site would be the bone. Now, what if they haven’t determined from all of the tests what the primary is, but they know that the cells that are in the breast are not breast cells? They know it came from someplace else but they haven’t determined where. What do you do? So that’s a metastatic breast. They know because they looked at the cells, Pathology tells them it’s still a secondary cancer.

The patient is being admitted to home health for administration of IV medications to treat the anemia in the home. The kidney was previously removed; however, the cancer is also still being actively treated. Coded: M1021 a. Malignant neoplasm of right kidney: C64.1 M1023 b. Anemia in neoplastic disease: D63.0 M1023 c. Encounter for adjustment and management of vascular access device: Z45.2 M1023 d. Acquired absence of kidney: Z90.5 Rationale: The primary focus of home health will be the anemia; however, coding guidelines instruct that if the anemia is due to cancer, the specific neoplasm should be coded first. This is followed by the anemia. Because the patient will be receiving IV therapy in the home, attention to the VAD is coded next. Lastly this is followed by the status of the removed kidney as this will likely impact the patient’s POC. ************************************ More about Our Company: http://ppsplus.com/about-us/ Master ICD-10 coding and all home health topics: http://ppsplus.com/what-we-do/education/ PPS Plus is headquartered in Biloxi, Mississippi. ************************************ PPS Plus provides the perfect solution for maximizing your reimbursement potential, growing your business and providing your patients with better care.

That patient has no other medical diagnoses. ANSWER M1021a – Encounter for orthopedic aftercare following surgical amputation – Z47.81 M1023b – Type 2 diabetes mellitus with diabetic peripheral angiopathy without gangrene – E11.51 M1023c – Acquired absence of left leg below knee – Z89.512 Rationale: Because the primary reason for admittance into home health is the recent BKA, aftercare following surgical amputation is coded first. Diabetes with the PVD was the causal factor for the amputation and should be coded as both have the potential for impacting the patient’s POC and healing status. Lastly the status code for the site of the amputation is added to indicate laterality. ************************************ Master ICD-10 coding and all home health topics: http://ppsplus.com/what-we-do/education/ PPS Plus is headquartered in Biloxi, Mississippi. ************************************ PPS Plus provides the perfect solution for maximizing your reimbursement potential, growing your business and providing your patients with better care.

Wound was healing normally upon return home and was coded as such. Two weeks post-op he fell getting out of bed and a small area of the wound dehisced. After a couple of days the wound began to have purulent drainage and patient developed fever which the nurse reported to the MD. Patient was readmitted to the hospital and is being discharged home on antibiotics via PICC and wet to dry dressing changes. ANSWER M1020a – Dehiscence of amputation stump – T87.81 M1022b – Infection of left lower extremity amputation stump – T87.44 M1022c – Type 2 diabetes mellitus with diabetic peripheral angiopathy without gangrene – E11.51 M1022d – Fitting and adjustment of vascular catheter – Z45.2 M1022e – Long term use of Antibiotics – Z79.2 Rationale: Complications of planned amputations have their own codes and since one code does not cover both the dehiscence and the infection, both T87.81 and T87.4- codes are necessary. Diabetes with the PVD was the causal factor for the amputation and should be coded as both have the potential for aggravating the patient’s condition even further. Usually IV antibiotics administered for the treatment of the infection is a long-term regimen and is coded as is the route since the clinician will be doing PICC line care. ************************************ More about Our Company: http://ppsplus.com/about-us/ Master ICD-10 coding and all home health topics: http://ppsplus.com/what-we-do/education/ PPS Plus is headquartered in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Scenario: The patient was admitted to home health following hospitalization for acute on chronic diastolic heart failure. While inpatient she was noted to have a pleural effusion, dyspnea, and edema with draining blisters. She was treated with a Pleurx, increased Lasix, and Unna boots and is now being discharged with these same diagnoses and interventions into home health for nursing and therapy. Codes: M1021a – I50.33 Acute on Chronic Diastolic Heart Failure M1023b – R23.8 Other Skin Changes (vesicular eruption) M1023c – J90 Pleural Effusion M1023d – Z46.82 Attention to Nonvascular Catheter M1023e – Z48.00 Nonsurgical Dressing Changes Rationale: Because the source of the current medical issues is the acute on chronic diastolic heart failure, this is coded as primary. Blister-like lesions, often documented as “weeping edema,” are vesicular eruptions. Following the instructions in the Alphabetic Index leads us to R23.8. Because the pleural effusion resulted in a Pleurx, which is not routine or ordinary care, this symptom was coded. Generally symptoms integral to a disease process are not coded when the definitive diagnosis causing the symptoms is known; however, at the 2016 Decision Health Coding Summit, we learned that in cases like this, where care is a bit more complicated, the symptoms may also be coded. I have used the code for attention to nonvascular cath to indicate care for the Pleurx. There is a debate amongst coders about what should be used in this instance. Some opt for the aftercare for respiratory system, however since this is not a surgical incision, I prefer the attention to nonvascular cath. Lastly, nonsurgical dressing changes was coded to indicate the Unna boot therapy for the weeping edema. ************************************ More about Our Company: http://ppsplus.com/about-us/ Master ICD-10 coding and all home health topics: http://ppsplus.com/what-we-do/education/ PPS Plus is headquartered in Biloxi, Mississippi. ************************************ PPS Plus provides the perfect solution for maximizing your reimbursement potential, growing your business and providing your patients with better care.

SCENARIO Ulcers The patient is being admitted to home health for a wound the physician describes as an ulcer without etiology as well as the diagnosis if hypertension. Upon admission, the nursing assessment reveals that the patient’s ulcer consists of skin breakdown of the left heel. ANSWER M1021a – Non-pressure chronic ulcer of left heel and mid-foot limited to breakdown of skin – L97.421 M1023b – Essential (primary) hypertension – I10 Rationale: Because the physician does not identify an etiology of the ulcer (e.g., arterial, diabetes, pressure, venous insufficiency, etc.), an L97- code is used as primary. If the associated underlying condition is known, this should be coded first. The L97 codes allow you to identify not only the location, but the severity of the ulcer as well. In this scenario, the nursing assessment indicates that the severity is limited to the breakdown of the skin, so a sixth character of “1” is appropriate. The coder may look at the detailed wound description and code severity based on nursing documentation. 0:14 - Scenario 0:32 - How to Code it 0:49 - Rationale ************************************ More about Our Company: http://ppsplus.com/about-us/ Master ICD-10 coding and all home health topics: http://ppsplus.com/what-we-do/education/ PPS Plus is headquartered in Biloxi, Mississippi. ************************************ PPS Plus provides the perfect solution for maximizing your reimbursement potential, growing your business and providing your patients with better care.

What Is Cancer? | Biology for All | FuseSchool
 
03:19
What happens to cells for cancerous growths to occur? Your body is made up of millions and millions of cells. In fact there are between 50 and 75 trillion cells in the body. These cells are dying and being replaced all the time. Cancer can start when just one of the trillions of cells begins to grow and multiply too much. The result is a mass of cells called a tumour. The starting place of abnormal cell growth and division is called the primary tumour, and they can start almost anywhere in the human body. Changes take place within the genes of a cell or group of cells, resulting in the abnormal cell division. Genes are specific codes of DNA that tell the cell what to do by coding for specific proteins or an RNA molecule. Proteins and RNA together control the cell. They decide what type of cell it is, what it does, when it divides and when the cell will die. When cells divide by mitosis, the DNA is replicated and sometimes mistakes are made. These are called mutations. Lots of mutations are silent; they have no effect on the cell because they occur in non-coding regions of the DNA. But sometimes, mutations in certain genes may mean that too many proteins are produced that trigger a cell to divide. Or proteins that normally tell a cell to stop dividing may not be produced. The cells starts to grow out of control. There have to be at least about 6 or more mutations to coding DNA before a normal cell turns into a cancer cell. Cells are usually very good at repairing damage to genes; they have special repair mechanisms in place. But over time, the damage may build up. And then it can be a domino effect; once the cells start growing too fast and dividing rapidly, they are more likely to pick up even more mutations and less likely to repair the damage. So mutations do the damage, but what causes them to happen? Whilst mutations can happen by natural processes, they can also be triggered by lifestyle. For example, there are cancer-causing substances, known as carcinogens, in tobacco smoke. In fact, more than 4 out of 5 cases of lung cancer are caused by smoking. Genetics also have a role to play; faulty genes can be passed from parent to offspring. Most inherited cases of breast cancer are associated with two abnormal genes: BRCA1 and BRCA2. Other cancer-causing factors include exposure to radiation, exposure to UV radiation from the sun and some chemicals in the environment amongst other things.

Medical Coding Tips — Coding History of Cancer
 
11:07
Medical Coding Tips — Coding History of Cancer http://www.cco.us/cco-yt Alicia: Sure! History of Cancer – again, this is a V code. We’re dealing with a V code here for history of cancer. Q: Understanding primary, secondary, and personal history of cancer. A: This can get really confusing especially when you’re just starting out in coding and Laureen and I had a discussion on this last month where I thought something was done a certain way because that’s the way I had been taught, or either I had seen a part of the guidelines that I’m going to show you. Then, I went back, she reminded me. I’m the ICD person and she’s more of the CPT, and she’s like, “I know this doesn’t sound right.” So I went and really did some more investigating. I even double checked with Jo-Anne who you met earlier, said, “Is this the way you see this too?” Again, she confirmed. Understanding Primary, Secondary, and Personal History of Cancer – The three things you need to know is it active primary cancer? Does the person has the cancer now and is being treated for? Is there active metastasis? Metastasis means that it was in one part of the body and it moved to another part of the body. Then, active treatment – is something going on that is actively being treated? This can be even treatment that’s being done after the cancer is eradicated and there’s medication that’s called tamoxifen that is given for breast cancer after they’re not showing any breast cancer, but I kind of think of it as they’re going to nip this in the bud so they have you take tamoxifen for five years. That’s the three things you need to think about when we get into these sections. There are two major guideline areas that we need to go over when we want to understand the history of cancer and how we code for that, as well understanding the primary, secondary portion. The first one is section I.C.18.d.4, and we should probablydo a slide sometime on how to find guidelines with this, this little sequence here, that would be a good one. Personal history codes explain a patient’s past medical condition that no longer exists and is not receiving any treatment, but that has the potential for recurrence, and therefore may require continued monitoring. So, when we think about the V codes that we talked about just a minute ago, a personal history of breast cancer, we’ll use that one, but let’s think of some other ones. If you’ve had a personal history of CVA or some kind of a condition, that’s really, really pertinent to the ongoing care, not only for your treatment but for statistical purposes. That’s very straightforward, that’s all personal history codes.

Types of Cancer for Medical Coders | Medical Coding Tips Alicia: Q: (Types of Cancer) – This student said “I’m confused about the types of cancer. I understand benign and malignant, but is there a way to know them by name?” A: Well, actually, in some ways there is, but let’s go over some of the main ones and see if we can help you there. So, malignant, now you said you know the difference between malignant and benign, so I’m not going to talk about that because they definitely are different. This is actually a picture of a malignant cancer and you notice those little spidery legs, spindly things coming out, that is what malignancy does, is invasive and it reaches out it, doesn’t stay in that little circular. The most common ones are, the ones that you want to memorize – now again, there’s different types but these are the ones for the different body systems. If it’s a carcinoma, its skin; if it’s a sarcoma, that’s bone, cartilage, fat, muscle, blood vessels, connective or supportive tissue. So, it would be specific, they’ll say a body part-sarcoma. Leukemia – is always about blood. It affects the bone marrow, that’s what we’re dealing with there, so leukemia is blood. A lymphoma is cells of the immune system. Again, a lymphoma, now notice all of these are in ending in “oma” that’s a heads up for malignancy, but lymphoma is the immune system. Central Nervous System Cancer – There isn’t a fancy name for those per se but that is when they’re dealing with brain and spinal cord.

ICD-10: How to Code Adverse Effects (Home Health Coding Tip by PPS Plus) - Oct 2015
 
03:07
Conquer your coding & OASIS challenges with the best home health tips on YouTube: http://ppsplus.com. Join PPS Plus' Assistant Director of Coding & OASIS Review Services, Victoria Jones, as she walks you through this tip about adverse effects. It's important to learn how to code adverse effects when your patient has an adverse reaction to a drug that was correctly prescribed and properly administered. Walk through a patient scenario, see how it's coded, then see an explanation of the coding chart. ************************************ Don’t compromise your OASIS.

Such cases are to be reported according to the nature of the adverse effect (e.g., dermatitis, aspirin gastritis, nephropathy, etc.). The T code from the Table of Drugs and Chemicals indicating therapeutic use should be added. Scenario: The patient has developed secondary diabetes due to long-term steroid use to treat his COPD. He is now insulin dependent and has diabetic polyneuropathy. M1021a…………………………… E09.42 (Drug or chemical induced diabetes mellitus with neurological complications with diabetic polyneuropathy) M1023b…………………………… T38.0X5S (Adverse effect of glucocorticoids and synthetic analogues, sequela) M1023c…………………………… Z79.4 (long term use of insulin) M1023d…………………………… Z79.51 (long term use of inhaled steroid) M1023e…………………………… J44.9 (COPD) Rationale: Coding guidelines instruct that when an adverse effect is caused by a drug that was correctly prescribed and properly administered, code the reaction plus the appropriate code from the Table of Drugs and Chemicals. This table now includes six columns: Accidental Poisoning, Intentional Self-Harm Poisoning, Assault Poisoning, Undetermined Poisoning, Adverse Effect, and Under-dosing. Codes from the Adverse Effect column of the Table of Drugs and Chemicals must be used to identify the causative substance for an adverse effect of drug correctly prescribed and properly administered. In this scenario the adverse effect (secondary diabetes) is coded followed by the appropriate adverse effect code from the Table of Drugs and Chemicals (steroids) with a seventh character of “S” to indicate a sequela, which means that the secondary diabetes is a late effect caused by the steroid use. Because this patient has the co-morbidity of COPD and continues to currently take insulin and steroids as prescribed, those codes were also used. *********************************** More about Our Company: http://ppsplus.com/about-us/ Master ICD-10 coding and all home health topics: http://ppsplus.com/what-we-do/education/ PPS Plus is headquartered in Biloxi, Mississippi. ************************************ PPS Plus provides the perfect solution for maximizing your reimbursement potential, growing your business and providing your patients with better care.

Lung CT Screening Early Detection of Lung Cancer Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society. Research has shown that screening reduces death from lung cancer among people at high risk. That's why a low-dose lung CT screening program has been developed to catch lung cancer when it's more treatable. Get Healthy's Jackie Hays tells us more about the program and who qualifies. If you would like more information about the Low Dose Lung CT Screening program, call (502) 629-LUNG.

Benign Tumors - Causes, Symptoms, Treatments & More…
 
01:37
See much more honest health information at: http://www.rehealthify.com/ Rehealthify offers reliable, up-to-date health information, anytime, anywhere, for free. -- video script below -- Tumors are abnormal growths in your body. They are made up of extra cells. Normally, cells grow and divide to form new cells as your body needs them. When cells grow old, they die, and new cells take their place. Sometimes, this process goes wrong. New cells form when your body does not need them, and old cells do not die when they should. When these extra cells form a mass, it is called a tumor. Tumors can be either benign or malignant. Benign tumors aren't cancer. Malignant ones are. Benign tumors grow only in one place. They cannot spread or invade other parts of your body. Even so, they can be dangerous if they press on vital organs, such as your brain. Treatment often involves surgery. Benign tumors usually don't grow back. NIH: National Cancer Institute

Coding Metastatic Breast Cancer Diagnosis
 
05:09
Coding Metastatic Breast Cancer Diagnosis http://www.cco.us/hcc-coding-risk-adjustment-course-yt Q: [Coding Metastatic Breast Cancer Diagnosis] “If the only documentation is metastatic breast, how can I code it like a secondary, or do I code it as a secondary or primary side?” A: Well, it’s very easy to get confused, like I said, but you have two options with it just saying metastatic breast. You could go with C50.919 - malignant neoplasm of unspecified site, of unspecified female breast. That is an option but a better and the best option is C79.81 - secondary malignant neoplasm of the breast. I’m going to now explain why that’s the best choice. There’s a coding note that I found that’s really worded well, so I took it from that site. I noted it there. When neoplasms are malignant, you get to review the provider documentation to identify the primary site and any secondary, and notice I put in brackets here (metastatic) sites. Look for documentation that identifies the spread “from” the primary site “to” the secondary site. The reason this really popped for me is because they said secondary metastatic site. Now, let’s look into this a little bit more, again the footnote on there is a great site. That site is will be in the Replay Club and you can bookmark that site, http://ICD-10online.com which is fantastic. As we scroll down here’s a couple other things that I found on this website that again really, really popped for us. What is metastatic cancer? Now, as you’re coding, you learn this very quickly because you’re tested on it. So, one of the things that is covered frequently; however, the lingo and the verbiage sometimes you get kind of confused because they’re throwing all these stuff at you. To metastasize is to move from one place to another, so we’ve already know that. We’ll say that’s something that’s kind of easy to remember.

CPT Code for Thyroidectomy — CPT Coding Guidelines
 
04:44
CPT Code for Thyroidectomy — CPT Coding Guidelines http://www.cco.us/cco-yt Alright so this question is on thyroidectomies. It was, "I have a patient who's having a right thyroid lobectomy done. Do I code for a total or a partial?" So let me go through my little thyroid spiel. This... what comes to mind immediately is think of a butterfly and there's a picture in CPT that if you... you can kind of visualize it and it does look like a butterfly, like the 2 wings on either side and then that middle little on the thyroid. It's called the isthmus. I always sound like I'm lisping when I talk about the deal in the middle here. So when you look at the codes, if you think of the butterfly... because some of them will say they did you know, one lobe. Some will say they did part of one lobe and part of another lobe so let's go through that. Now that you have the visual of a butterfly in mind with the isthmus in the middle, the first two codes are a biopsy and then an excision of an adenoma or cyst. But this is where they start for the thyroidectomy code. 60210 is partial thyroid lobectomy, unilateral and this is with or without the isthmus so with or without the middle portion. So this is actually supposed to look like ¼ so ¼ of the butterfly is being removed because there's 2 lobes, a right and left lobe. So they're doing a partial lobectomy on one side. So that's why I think of it as ¼ of the butterfly. Now 6021 says with the contralateral, which means opposite side, subtotal lobectomy including the isthmus. So think of that as half the butterfly. It's not one whole lobe. It could be the upper of the right and the lower of the left or the upper of the right and the upper of the left. You get the idea but basically, half the butterfly is being removed. 60220 is a total thyroid lobectomy, unilateral. So that would be the answer for your question here, having the right thyroid lobectomy done. If they're removing the whole lobe, that's what's you're going to use, 60220. And so that's half the butterfly but it's one side, right or left. And again, it's with or without the isthmus. You don't code that separate if they do it. And then 60225 is what contralateral subtotal lobectomy. So they had half the butterfly on the right side gone and now, they're taking a little bit on the opposite side. So I view that as ¾ of the butterfly gone. And then your 60240 is a thyroidectomy -- total or complete so the whole butterfly is gone. And then if you are doing a total or subtotal for malignancy, so there's a cancer, with a limited neck dissection then you're going to go beyond that. You're going to get into these 60252 codes. So limited neck dissection versus radical neck dissection. And then 60260, this is also called a completion thyroidectomy in that they remove part of the tissue in one operative session and now they're coming back and removing the rest of the thyroid. So this is a thyroidectomy, removal of all remaining thyroid tissue following previous removal of a portion. Okay and then this 60270 -- thyroidectomy including substernal thyroid, sternal split or transthoracic approach so you know, obviously, many times with CPT coding, the approach will dictate which codes we're going to use over others. So hopefully, that is a good little overview for you of thyroid coding, thyroid surgery coding. thyroidectomy procedure Click here to get more cpc exam tips, coding certification training, and ceu credits. http://www.cco.us/cco-monthly-newsletter http://youtu.be/-lCwvbyVokM

Time to breathe  easy and say bye bye to lung cancer

Smokers who have asthma could have worse symptoms, and are more prone to get an attack, and often have a different kind of airway inflammation than the non-smoking asthmatics. Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways of the lungs. Cigarette smoking can be dangerous for asthma patients, as tobacco smoke is a powerful trigger of asthma symptoms. In asthma, allergic inflammation of the bronchial tubes increases mucus production, leading to cough and phlegm. In long-term cigarette smokers, chronic inhalation of smoke from burning tobacco also stimulates the mucous glands in the bronchial tubes to make excess mucus, giving rise to daily cough with phlegm. Smokers who have asthma could have worse symptoms, and are more prone to get an attack, and often have a different kind of airway inflammation than the non-smoking asthmatics. The mechanism Smoke comprises more than 4,000 chemicals, including carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide makes it harder for oxygen to flow around the body. When you smoke, or are exposed to smoke, you are taking the chemicals right into your lungs. The chemicals inflame the airways and lungs. If you are a smoker, or are regularly exposed to tobacco smoke, you will have more symptoms and need more medicines for your asthma. If your asthma symptoms increase, you are at a higher risk of an attack. Even if you are a passive smoker, symptoms can occur when you come in contact with an active smoker. How does tobacco smoke trigger asthma? When a person breathes in tobacco smoke, irritating substances get deposited in the moist linings of the airways. These substances can cause an asthmatic attack. In addition, tobacco smoke damages tiny hair in the airways called cilia. Generally, cilia sweeps dust and mucus out of the airways of the lungs. Tobacco smoke harms cilia so they become inactive and let dust and mucus in the airways. Smoke also triggers high production of mucus than normal and as a result causes an attack. Is passive smoking harmful to a person with asthma? Second-hand smoke is a mixture of smoke from a burning cigar or cigarette and smoke exhaled by a smoker. Passive smoking is particularly damaging to people with asthma. When an asthma patient is open to exhaled smoke, he or she is more susceptible to wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath. Asthma in children and effects of passive smoking on them When a child is exposed to tobacco smoke, his lungs become inflamed and hence produce more mucus than normal. Since a child’s airways are smaller, the second-hand smoke affects them faster and can hamper lung function in later life. Children whose parents smoke are also more prone to develop lung and sinus infections. These infections can lead to worse asthma symptoms, which are more difficult to control. It can also lead to delayed progress in young children. Can smoking harm an unborn child? Nicotine, the addictive ingredient in tobacco products, travels through the mother’s blood directly into the baby’s body. Children whose mothers smoke during pregnancy may have weaker lungs, and are therefore prone to airborne diseases like asthma. Ways to decrease exposure to tobacco smoke: *If you smoke, quit now. Quitting is not easy, but there are many medical resources and programmes to help. Ask your doctor to help you find the one that is best for you. If your spouse or relatives smoke, make them understand the hazards of smoking and encourage them to quit. *Do not allow smoking in your home, your car or nearby area. *Do not let anyone smoke around you or your relatives. *Avoid public spaces that permit smoking.

What are the common categories of cancer?
 
02:14
Cancer may occur anywhere in the body. In women, breast cancer is one of the most common. In men, it’s prostate cancer. Lung cancer and colorectal cancer affect both men and women in high numbers. Depending on the location and cell type of the cancer it may fall into a category. Watch the video and follow the transcript below to understand more about the development of cancer and common categories. https://www.cancercenter.com/what-is-cancer/?invsrc=organic_social&utm_budget=corp&utm_channel=social&utm_site=youtube Video Transcript How does a cell become cancer? Every cell in your body has a complete strand of DNA, and packed into each molecular string is about 25,000 genes. As we grow and age, new cells form. They’re created by DNA replicating itself, copying and transmitting its exact sequence. Sometimes this process goes awry, spawning coding errors. Errors that aren’t fixed become permanent mutations, which behave differently in cancer cells than in normal cells. Cancer forms when the mutations become harmful. Cancer cells fall into five main categories: Carcinomas form in epithelial cells that make up the skin or tissues lining internal organs. Sarcomas develop in soft tissue, including bones, cartilage, fat, muscle or connective tissues. Leukemia begins in lymphoblastic or myeloid cells of blood-forming tissue. Lymphomas start in lymphocytes (T cells or B cells) in the immune system. Brain and spinal cord tumors develop in the brain or spinal cord and are named based on the cell of origin. Physicians now have the ability to understand what drives the growth of some cancer cells through assessing the genetic profile of the tumor, which may lead to more precise cancer treatments.

COPD: Lung damage from smoking
 
03:54
In this video I am going to explain some basic things about COPD. Here I am not talking to health care providers, I am talking directly to you- the patient. If you are concerned about COPD, have a loved one with COPD or if you smoke cigarettes, this video is for you. COPD: Simply speaking COPD or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease just means lung damage, a slow but progressive lung damage, mostly from smoking cigarettes. Only a small number of patients develop COPD from some other cause. If you smoke cigarettes you will eventually gets COPD.Most people worry about lung cancer when they're smoking. Yes, lung cancer is the most scary result of smoking but it does not happen to everyone who smokes. You may be lucky and may not have lung cancer despite many years of smoking. But COPD does not spare you. If you smoke you get COPD. It it just a matter of time. If you have genetically susceptible lungs you may get COPD after just a few years of smoking. If you are born with strong lungs, if you have strong lungs, it may take many years for you to get COPD, but it will happen to everyone who smokes. The damage happens in two different components of the lungs: air tubes and air balloons. The air balloons inside our lungs are very elastic. They expand when we breathe in and partially collapse when we breathe out. This moment is what makes the gas exchange possible. Oxygen goes into the lungs and carbon dioxide comes out and goes out into the air. The damage to air tubes makes them narrower and they get plugged up like this. It prevents enough here from reaching into the air balloons. You may feel irritation in these tubes and start coughing. You may also have wheezing sound as you try to squeeze more air into these narrow pipes. The damage to the balloons make them less elastic and over-extended like this and do not recoil property.The result is that it makes you feel short of breath. your body suffocates from the lack of oxygen. The most important treatment for COPD is to stop smoking. That is the only way to prevent any farther damage. After you stop smoking, medications and inhalers may be able to help you breathe a little more easier but they don't really cure the damage that has been done already. The key is to stop smoking when the lung damage is at the early stages. The best thing, of course, is to stop smoking before you develop COPD and live with healthy lungs and enjoy the fresh air.

Metastasis, Cancer Nomenclature, Tumor Nomenclature Lymphatic Spread Metalloproteinase
 
05:48
http://www.stomponstep1.com/metastasis-cancer-nomenclature-tumor-nomenclature/ Mesenchymal (connective tissue, blood or lymphatic tissue) cancers have a specific naming system. There is a prefix for different types of tissue that make up the tumor and a suffix to signify whether it is benign or malignant. However, Cancers of blood cells (Leukemia) and lymph nodes (Lymphoma), both of which are always malignant, do not follow this pattern. Prefix + OMA = Benign Mesenchymal Cancer Prefix + SARCOMA = Malignant Mesenchymal Cancer Mesenchymal Cancer Prefix • Lipo- = Fat • Osteo- = Bone • Fib- = Fibrous Tissue • Chondro- = Cartilage • Hemangio- = Blood vessel • Leiomyo- = smooth muscle • Rhabdomyo- = striated muscle Cancers that originate from epithelium (glands and surface/cavity lining) have a naming system that is more complicated. Benign epithelial cancers that contain glandular tissue (such as prostate, adrenal glands and certain types of colon cancer) are called Adenomas. Adenomas often grow into the lumen of whatever organ they are in forming a Polyp. Cystadenomas are hollow cysts-like cancers that are usually filled with fluid. Benign cancers of stratified squamous epithelium that form “cauliflower” finger like projections are called Papillomas. Malignant epithelial cancers are called Carcinomas. Metastasis is the spread of a cancer from the original tumor location to “distant” sites in the body. This is generally thought of as being separate from cancer invasion, which is the direct extension of a cancer across an organ or to neighboring organs. Invasion is a tumor growing in size and taking up more space, while metastasis involves migration to a completely new site. Metastasis is the most important prognostic factor for a cancer and is represented by the cancer’s Stage (More important than the cancer’s level of differentiation or grade). Metastasis is usually via the lymphatic system or the blood vessels. In this way, the cancer cells use the lymph or blood as a highway to get to other sites in the body. Carcinomas tend to spread via the lymph while sarcomas more commonly spread via blood, but there are numerous exceptions to this general rule. Carcinoma = Lymphatic Spread Sarcoma = Hematologic (Blood) Spread To be able to spread cancer cells need certain abilities which are gained via additional mutations. These mutations allow the cancer cells to break away from the primary tumor, “eat” through the basement membrane (Type IV Collengenase), “eat” through the extracellular matrix (Metalloproteinases), enter the lymphatics/blood, survive travel in the fluid, exit lymphatics/blood, and survive in the new site. The original mass is called the primary tumor while all subsequent masses are secondary tumors. Cancers can spread almost anywhere once they are in the lymph or blood, but the location of secondary tumor sites is not random. The circulatory anatomy and how accommodating certain tissues are to cancers mean that secondary tumors arise in certain areas most often. Due to these tendencies the most likely location of metastasis can often be predicted. Secondary Tumor: Most likely Primary Tumor: • Liver GI cancers like colon cancer • Brain (gray-white junction) Lung & Breast • Bone (spine) Prostate (blastic), Lung (lytic) & Breast (Both) • Lung Breast Liver Metastasis is most common among cancers that arise in the GI tract (Like colon cancer), which makes sense as the liver receives blood from the GI tract through portal venous system. The Brain Metastasis usually present at the Gray-White matter junction. This is because the width of the vessels changes quickly at this junction and metastatic “emboli” are more likely to lodge here. Metastatic brain cancer generally presents as multiple lesions while a primary brain cancer is usually a single lesion. Lung and Breast are the most common primary site for brain metastasis. Lung Metastasis is most often from breast cancer. Primary bone cancers are rare, but Metastasis to Bone is relatively common. Metastasis to the spine (resulting in low back pain) from the prostate is a common presentation in step 1 questions. Different primary tumors have unique secondary bone cancer characteristics. Lytic lesions are where increased osteoclast activity eats away at the bone and releases calcium (seen as hypercalcemia). Blastic Lesions are where increased osteoblastic activity results in more bone being laid down than normal. 1o Lung Cancer --) osteoLytic 2o Bone Cancer 1o Prostate Cancer --) osteoblastic 2o Bone Cancer 1o Breast Cancer --) Both lytic and blastic 2o Bone Cancer Now that you have finished this video you should check out the next video in the Cell Injury, Cell Death & Cancer sections which covers Cell Cycle (http://www.stomponstep1.com/cell-cycle-interphase-labile-cell-stable-permanent-tissue/)

Coding for Cushing’s Syndrome - 255.0 Medical Coding
 
05:07
Coding for Cushing’s Syndrome - 255.0 Medical Coding http://go.cco.us/physician-based-medical-coding-course Alicia: Cushing syndrome, the code for that is 255.0 and the question was – Q: I encountered this question in one of the online exams that I purchased. I'm confused, because I believe that in neoplasm you need to code primary cancer in the second position and secondary cancer in the first position which is true by the most part, but this is a little bit different. This is actually considered late effect and the rules for late effect are a little bit different than coding for primary and secondary cancer. The question actually stated, “Cushing syndrome due to” – that’s our keywords – “malignant pheochromocytoma. A: She was stating that the correct answer was C which the 194 – if we scroll down a little bit, it will tell us that’s the malignancy. Then, 255.0 is the Cushing’s syndrome. She’s confused about sequencing. This is really a great example. What you have to think about is what story are you trying to convey to the payer when you're doing this coding? And you're stating that patient had a malignancy and this is a malignancy where the cancer is on the adrenal gland which is above your kidney and it caused Cushing’s. That’s the late effect. I gave a little bit of a description about how that happens or what that does to affect it. Those glands are on top of the kidney, it’s not very common; but if you get a tumor or a problem with those adrenal glands it will mess up every tissue in your entire body. The two codes again that we’re dealing with is 194.0 and it’s a malignant neoplasm of the adrenal gland and as a result of that cancer, then they develop Cushing syndrome. There was note with the code that I pulled out and it said, “All neoplasms whether functionally active or not, are classified in Chapter 2. Codes in Chapter 3…” and it gave this list “…may be used to identify such functional activity associated with any neoplasm, or ectopic endocrine tissue.” That note was actually there with the Cushing’s code. They’re telling you, “We know that these two codes are associated with each other.” Real quick, what Cushing’s does is it’s just a hormonal disorder. When you have that hormone in the body tissues, then you develop – that’s that real round face and they get real heavy on the top and the upper body and then their legs and arms get kind of spindly. One of the main things is it causes a lot of hypertension, but it also really messes with blood sugars as well, the endocrine system and on the glands. Ultimately, what has to be done is they’ve got to go out and take that malignancy or the tumor or anything that’s happening to the adrenal gland to alleviate the problem. Once they do that, then the Cushing’s would go away. Again, it’s not something that’s very common to have a tumor in the adrenal gland, but when it does happen one of the likely things to develop is Cushing’s. Again, sequencing, the malignancy does go first in this scenario, because what happened first? It’s not what they're being seen for that day perse. The statement was that this person had Cushing’s disease due to a malignancy. When you're telling the story, the patient had a malignancy on the adrenal gland – the cancer – and as a result they develop Cushing’s. That’s why C – 194.0 and 255.0 – is an acceptable sequencing for that diagnostic statement. That’s it guys. It’s an exciting and good question to come in. Boyd: Excellent. Next up, I think we’ve got Laureen.

What Is Cancer  ?
 
03:00
What happens to cells for carcinogenic developments to happen? Your body is comprised of a huge number of cells. Indeed there are in the vicinity of 50 and 75 trillion cells in the body. These cells are passing on and being supplanted constantly. Growth can begin when only one of the trillions of cells starts to develop and increase excessively. The outcome is a mass of cells called a tumor. The beginning spot of irregular cell development and division is known as the essential tumor, and they can begin anyplace in the human body. Changes happen inside the qualities of a cell or gathering of cells, bringing about the unusual cell division. Qualities are particular codes of DNA that instruct the cell by coding for particular proteins or a RNA particle. Proteins and RNA together control the cell. They choose what kind of cell it is, the thing that it does, when it isolates and when the cell will kick the bucket. At the point when cells partition by mitosis, the DNA is recreated and once in a while botches are made. These are called changes. Bunches of transformations are noiseless; they have no impact on the cell since they happen in non-coding locales of the DNA. However, now and then, transformations in specific qualities may imply that excessively numerous proteins are created that trigger a cell to partition. Or, then again proteins that regularly advise a cell to quit partitioning may not be delivered. The cells begins to become crazy. There must be in any event around at least 6 transformations to coding DNA before an ordinary cell transforms into a tumor cell. Cells are typically great at repairing harm to qualities; they have extraordinary repair components set up. Be that as it may, after some time, the harm may develop. And afterward it can be a domino impact; once the cells begin becoming too quick and separating quickly, they will probably get much more changes and more averse to repair the harm. So transformations do the harm, yet what makes them happen? While transformations can occur by common procedures, they can likewise be activated by way of life. For instance, there are disease causing substances, known as cancer-causing agents, in tobacco smoke. Actually, more than 4 out of 5 instances of lung malignancy are caused by smoking. Hereditary qualities additionally have a part to play; flawed qualities can be passed from parent to posterity. Most acquired instances of bosom malignancy are related with two strange qualities: BRCA1 and BRCA2. Other growth causing factors incorporate introduction to radiation, presentation to UV radiation from the sun and a few chemicals in the earth in addition to other things. lymphoma , lung cancer , pancreatic cancer , skin cancer , ovarian cancer , leukemia , colon cancer , cervical cancer , liver cancer , thyroid cancer , bladder cancer , breast cancer symptoms , stomach cancer , ovarian cancer symptoms , bone cancer , testicular cancer , throat cancer , melanoma , cancer symptoms , kidney cancer , brain cancer , mouth cancer , esophageal cancer, colorectal cancer , stage 4 cancer , tongue cancer , uterine cancer
