    Exclamation Removal of cartilage tag (CPT?)
    Medical Coding Books
    I am trying to find the cpt to code for the removal of cartilage tags (not skin tags).

    The cartilage tags (or bumps) are in the preauricular area.

    Thanks, in advance, for any help!

    We use excision of benign lesion and layered closure, as appropriate/documented.
