:rolleyes:During a colonoscopy a polyp is removed. The polyp is dx by pathology as high dysplasia. At a second colonoscopy a tatoo is done at the site of the polypectomy scar. Would the dx be V12.72 - pers. hx of colon px or .... Thank you for your help

That's a toughy.

I want to say you would use 211.3, but I think V12.72. Good luck getting that paid though.

I also want to say why didn't the doc just tattoo the site during the original procedure?
