Hello...doc is excising skin/subcu for hidradenitis of the right breast. The only options are axillary, inguinal, or perianal - perineal and umbilical. I'm thinking axillary unless I use 19120. Any opinions?
Thanks

Hidradenitis of RT Breast

JenMar,

Axillary seems like the best option. When I looked that word up in the ICD-9-CM book, page 142 (far left column) made reference to axillary. It also gave a Dx code of 705.83. Hope that helps.
