Patient had excision of left submandibular subcutaneous mass (2.5 x 2.2 x 0.8cm). Patient sent to recovery. Patient then had to return back to the operating room for exploration because of bleeding from the wound. Discovered a small artery which had a hole which was cauterized. Can anyone please help with CPT and ICD9 code.

Thank you,
Brandy Mullins

Final diagnosis is chronic abscess in subcutaneous fat, secondary to ruptured epidermal inclusion cyst.
