I'm coding a Bronch with bx; FNA.

Can someone direct me to where I find information about which direction to go when I see this on a pathology report?

Path report says this for the paratracheal lymph node:
Small cell carcinoma (high grade neuroendocrine carcinoma).

The index states small cell carcinoma - code malignant by site. Neuroendocrine in the index states high grade - C7A.

The path report for the bronchial bx states 'compatible with small cell carcinoma'.


Much appreciated!
