    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi all,

    scalpel was used to carfully incise over this firm nodule in the labia minora. Applying a small amount of pressure, yellowish fatty fluid was released frm this and it was gone in its entirely. The capsule was grasped with a hemostat to disrupt it. There was excellent hemostasis and required no sutures

    No path sent
    10140 or 56501 dx 625.8??? Any ideas would be great :-)
