Default punch biopsy of the breast

our physician did a punch biopsy of breast tissue using the punch instrument; it really isn't an excision biopsy or aspiration with a needle. I am wondering what cpt code to use for this part of procedure. I have looked everywhere but can't find the code it leads me to sking 11100-11101 pr tp 19100-19102 but neither description really describes it as a punch type biopsy

Thank you
