    What is the location? It's been years since I've coded anything other than cardiology, but I believe it would be under connective tissue. Hope this helps!

    The code you need is probably in the 239.x range - since you did not state the site of the tumor, I cannot give you a more specific code. Look it up in your ICD-9 book under Neoplasm, Connective tissue, then choose the anatomical site, and use the unspecified code.
