I don't think I would use 19112, that is an excision.
Lay Description of 19112
The physician makes an incision around the abnormal opening of a lactiferous duct fistula on the skin. The fistula is dissected down to the duct. The duct, fistula, and skin opening are all excised. The remaining portion of the duct may be ligated. The wound is irrigated with warm sterile saline and closed in layers.
19000 seems more like what was done but since it wasn't a cyst I really don't know. I would probably go with 10060 personally.
Sorry not much help,
