Parotid lymph node biopsy

  1. Question Parotid lymph node biopsy
    Medical Coding Books
    Anyone have any feedback on a parotid lymph node biopsy?

    Surgeon did a preauricular incision from the upper part of the ear all the way down towards the earlobe. Skin and subcutaneous tissue were divided by sharp dissection, he then raised a preparotid fascial flap and found the lymph nodes deep in the parotid tissue, nodes were removed.

    Any advised is greatly appreciated.

    That would be superficial lymph nodes. 38500, also use 38900 if that applies.
