K11.9 is a diagnosis code for a disease of the salivary gland. It can signify a benign or malignant issue. It is a very non-specific code. Has your doctor discussed the results of the MRI? That, along with a biopsy, would probably be the only way to determine exactly what is going on.

This is Dr. David

I see you have opted out the other expert.

K11.9 would not be used for a malignant salivary gland diagnosis.

it is only used for benign conditions.

let me know if you have questions.
