Borderline ovarian tumors are in the middle, with some clinical and microscopic characteristics appearing like a carcinoma (more aggressive than a benign cyst), but with no evidence of invasive cancer. But the instruction in ICD10 seems clear from both the index and guidelines perspective. Index: mucinous, borderline, ovary, C56-. The guidelines also state that borderline is still a definitive diagnosis and should be coded as if it is confirmed. But they also advise to check with the provider if there is still doubt for a call on which to assign.
