Site-Specific Factor 3

Ulceration and Edema


**Note 1:** Tumor associated edema or ulceration is a poor risk. **Note 2:** Tumor associated edema or ulceration is usually histologically confirmed and documented in the pathology report. If tumor associated edema or ulceration is diagnosed clinically without pathologic confirmation, use code 040. **Note 3:** If there is no documentation or no mention of ulceration or edema in the pathology report or clinical examination, assume ulceration and edema are not present and use code 000.
