    I am trying to code for Groin Exploration and think it might be an unlisted procedure and just want to know for sure?

    The reason for the exploration would be the first indicator of the type of CPT code you would use.

    First a sentinel lymph node would be biopsy 38500 and depending on disease outcome, then reason for exploration would be to do a pelvic lymphadenectomy...so what ever the medical reason is for, hope I put you in the right direction
