Thread: Exploration and Biopsy of the Perineum

  1. #1

    Default Exploration and Biopsy of the Perineum

    AAPC: Back to School
    My Physician did a exploration and biopsy on the perineum area on a Male. It was orginally thought to be an abscess but once he opened it up all he found was inflammed tissue. I can locate this on a Female but there is not much for a male. Any help would be great.

    I would try to use the CPT code 11004. And ICD.9 Neoplasm benign 229.8
