    I would use the 573.8, other specified disorders of liver.

    I agree with 573.8-other specified disorders of liver.

    You are lead to 573.9 (unspecified) - would you change once you get to the tabular to 573.8 (other)? I'm thinking mass = unspecified disorder and doesn't fit under "other" category since not specific.

    Your thoughts?
