    Try 26115-26118 depending on size and type of mass.

    Default Please post op note
    For an accruate response to surgical coding questions, please post the scrubbed operative / procedure note. Additionally, for some questions you will get a more expert advice by posting the the specialty forum (e.g. Plastic Surgery or Gastroenterology)

    Hope that helps.
