I am billing for a patient who had a colonoscopy with snare and pathology came back as "fecal material". Can anyone advise as to what ICD 10 code I would use? Thanks

Is this for a screening colonoscopy or diagnostic? If it's a screening then just use Z12.11 and no other code if no polyps were removed. If it's diagnostic then use the reason for the colonoscopy. Fecal material is a normal finding in the colon.
