    Default Excision of skene's gland cyst

    Promo: Code Books
    Dr. excised a Skene's gland cyst - no I&D. Documentation states ..."the cyst wall was meticulously dissected". I wouldn't code this as fulguration, either. Any ideas on a CPT code? Thanks so much!

    53270 will be a reliable CPT code for excision of skene's gland cyst.
