cervical mass

  1. #1
    Default cervical mass
    Medical Coding Books
    anyone know what diagnosis can be used for this.

  2. Default
    ICD#9 dx. code
    mass, neck area 784.2
    If there is a lymph node involved, I would use 785.6. Make sure you have documentation. If not, the other code would work for a basic.
