The provider notes has that a single lesion located on the back was biopsied. The wound was sutured. My question is does the biopsy cover both the excision and the biopsy or would I need to also add a excision code?

taking a sample and send for analysis its a biopsy. Excision is a full thickness removal of the entire lesion + margins
