I'll use 54512, Excision of extraparenchymal lesion of testis.

Lay Description:

The physician excises an extraparenchymal lesion of the testis. The physician makes an inguinal incision, incising the skin and subcutaneous fat. The testicle is delivered through the incision, the tunica vaginalis is opened, and the lesion is excised. The incision is closed with suture.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, that is the code I originally came up with, but I was second guessing myself.
