There really aren't any great codes for this. I can suggest the following:
38500-22 (-22 for deep) for the node, 27299 for the patch and ilioinguinal nerve. Or you can look at 64772 for the resection, however, the ilioinguinal is a branch off L1 which is truly a spinal nerve.
38500-22 (Payer may consider Node as incidental to.)
27299 (depending on value, could be more than 38500?)
Next time, tell us what codes you are thinking.
