    Diagnosis- Perineal mass

    Procedure : Anesthesia was given and an incision was nade directly over the area for around 7 cm and dissected down through the skin and subctaneous vtissue to what appeared to be a large lipoma which was deep. It was all removed. It was over 5CM TO 8 cm . Excellent hemostasis was noted. The wound was closed with 3-0 Vicryl and then the nylon.

    Thats all I have on this ? any ideas for cpt
