Mary,

The question is if it was only stated as a lesion then you shouldn't code excision of a chalazion which is 67800. If you select lesion of the eyelid it brings up a list and with the information you provided I would select other minor lesion involving skin or subcutaneous tissue only and that codes to 11440 with no size indicated. Hope that helps.

Jennifer
