Can anyone help me with the proper ICD-10 code for the following pathology report diagnosis?

A. PENILE LESION, MIDLINE, (BIOPSY):
EPIDERMAL INCLUSION CYST
NO MALIGNANCY SEEN

B. PENILE LESIONS, LEFT LATERAL, (BIOPSY):
BENIGN EPITHELIAL LINED CYSTS (X2)
NO MALIGNANCY SEEN

The body site for each biopsy (A and B), as described by the urologist, is a "penile lesion". The pathologist's findings show an epidermal inclusion cyst on specimen A and benign epithelial lined cyst on specimen B. We are not sure whether to code N48.89 or L72.0.

The answer appears to be "neither."

In the index I look to:
Cyst
skin
genital organ NEC
male N50.8
