Thread: bleeding mole

    Default bleeding mole

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can anyone tell me the code for a bleeding mole on the back? Would 216.9 be an appropriate code?

    Thanks for any help.

    I looked under hemorrhage, mole 631. Hope it helps.

    Code 631 pertains to Complications of Pregnancy. In the index, mole has "see also Neoplasm, skin, benign" Code 216.5 is neoplasm, benign, site specific to back.
