    I try to stay away from the neoplasm table unless I have something more definitive. Could 733.90 work? Looking under "lesion" in the index and "bone", it directs you to 733.90 (disorder of bone & cartilage, unspec).
    I know you mentioned body...If this doesn't work, maybe 239.2...Unspecified-vertebra
