I think you could use 32100. If the mass is attached to the descending aorta then it is within the chest cavity which this code covers. While the code may fall under the lungs and pleura section, the actual code description does not mention lungs or pleura so, in my opinion, anything in the chest would fall under this.
My other idea is maybe 39010 but I think 32100 would work.
