    Can someone help me with the cpt?
    is it 10022 or 19000?
    Ican't figure it out from the guidlines.

    FNA breast cyst-10022 is more appropriate than 19000.

    Default why?

    the "puncture" of the cyst is done anyway in 10022 and 19000
    somtimes the cyst is collapsing even with a 18/21 needle size?
