    Default penile lesion

    how do i code penile lesion? would i use icd 9 code 222.1?

    do you know it is benign?

    If it hasn't been biopsied, and the MD doesn't state what it is (i.e. HPV, Condyloma etc)

    Then what we have used is the 709.9 unspecified disorder of skin and subQ tissue.

    If anyone else has something that is more appropriate, i'd love to know as well.
