Thread: Lipoma-colon path

  1. #1

    Default Lipoma-colon path

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am coding a right hemicolectomy. The path of the the segment of colon taken calls it a 'submucosal lipoma'. Should I use 214.8 (lipoma, other specified site), 211.3 (benign neoplasm-lg. intestine), or 569.89? Thanks!
