we are wondering if this is something codeable or not. Pt had prostatectomy for prostate cancer, on the path report it states perineural invasion. Is this coded as a secondary invasion, 198.89 of the prostate 185? I'm not understanding what this phrase really means, is it the nerves around the outside the prostate or w/in the prostate?
thanks
