    It is definitely 620.9...look up the definition of adnexal. It consists of your ovaries and fallopian tubes!!

    The correct coding is 625.8, although when you look up mass in the index 625.8-refers to uterus. The actual ICD-9 625.8 does not just refer to the uterus, but to "female gential organs" (which includes ovaries and fallopian tubes). So a mass of the adnexal of the female genital organs is correctly coded as 625.8.
