TUR Urethra?

  1. Default TUR Urethra?
    Medical Coding Books
    Greetings All,

    Have a patient that underwent a TUR of the urethra with a 1.5cm tumor removed.
    Do I still use a 52234? Or is there a specific code for urethral tumors?


  2. Default
    You can use 52234 for TUR Urethra and removal tumor.

  3. Default Tur urethra
    I think a Urinary Unlisted would be more suitable for the TUR Urethra tumor. Please respond regarding your thoughts on that.
