    Default Dx left ing mass

    AAPC: Back to School
    Not sure what diagnosis code for a left inguinal mass biopsy

    Skin with subcutaneous tissue. In dermis, there is abscess lined by granulation tissue with multinucleated giant cell reaction, possibly representing ruptured cyst. No evidence of neoplasia seen.

    I am not sure of what diagnosis code to use.

    Thanks for your help.
