    Hello,

    Need a little help because I am trying a new specialty. How would you code an excision of a tumor on the buttocks?

    Any help would be appreciated. It sounds so simple, but is not easily found in my book. Thank you.

    21930 seems to be a winner- any thoughts?

    Is it a tumor or lesion? you can check the lesion codes if it is in the subcutaneous tissue.
