when I check the cross coder for 54163, the only three dx that came up were 605, v50.1, v50.2. I guess the other option would be maybe a scar related dx or perhaps an anomaly??

Usually when I receive these cases to code, it is due to redundant foresekin (which would fall to 605) or balanitis (607.1).
If your OP does not show anything definitive, I would go with V50.2
