resection of extensive pelvic mass

  1. Default resection of extensive pelvic mass
    Medical Coding Books
    On the OP report, in the procedure line it states, "resection of extensive pelvic mass", but in the final path report; it states that the mass was 10cm and it was the right ovary.(the tube was also removed) Would this be coded as a salpingo-oopherectomy 58720 or excision/destruction of intra-abdominal tumors greater than 10 cm 49205?

    Thanks, HB
