Thread: Ear canal lesion

  1. #1

    Default Ear canal lesion

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a doctor that is excising a "pedunculated lesion of the ear canal at the most lateral extent of the canal". Pathology states "dermal nevus with atypia"

    I'm not sure whether to use a 1---- code or maybe 69145?? Any help would be appreciated.
