Pt has a history of breast cancer, presented with a mass where a previous lipoma had been removed. It is now painful and irritated. After anesthetizing with 1% lidocaine with epinephrine, an incision was made over this mass. It was excised. It looked potentially like fat necrosis with a nice capsule. It was sent for pathology. After insuring that we removed it completely and there was hemostasis, deep tissues were closed with interrupted #4-0 Monocryl. Skin edges were closed with running #4-0 Monocryl subcuticular stitch. Steri-strips and sterile dressing were then applied.

Pathology reveals an organizing seroma. Can I still bill for a lesion excision code since it was a seroma?
