Thread: Scalp Swelling

    Default Scalp Swelling

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can we code 784.2 for scalp swelling?? If not kindly let me know the correct ICD.

    Thanks in advance

    That appears to be the appropriate code
    784.2 Swelling, mass, or lump in head and neck

    the only other option would appear to be:
    782.2 Localized superficial swelling, mass or lump
    (subcutaneous nodules)

    Hope this helps,
