Would I use a 1- code or is there a code in the 5- section for an excision of a labial cyst? Thank you.:)

Look at code 56405 and see if this description fits your op note. There is also a Bartholin cyst removal 56420 and 56440 if it is a Bartholin gland cyst

I would use a 11420-11426 code, it explains as "physician excises a benign lesion, including the margins, except a skin tag, on the geitalia. The physician may suture the wound simply.

All of the 5 codes that I found weren't excisions.
Good Luck

with th retro knife the incision on the base of the polyp on the right small labia was excised. The base was cauterized and closed with 3-0 plan catgut.
