Tillamook, OR
Best answers
I need help, this is my first one.

This man has right breast enlargement, nodularity and pain.
Pathology: gynecomastia
Procedule: right subcutaneous mastectomy

Incision was made from approx the 11:00-3:00 position. Subcutaneous tissue was dissected. Again there was an area of nodulaity over this entire area. It was elected to take all the breast tissue.

Do I use 19300 or 19304?:rolleyes:
