Excision Code

  1. Default Excision Code

    Hello, my physician wants to do a excision of a intradermal glueal cyst. I was thinking I should be looking in the 1000 series for the skin. Any other suggestions would be appreciated I didnt see anything specific when searching under excision and the specified area. Thanks

    Excision codes are 11400-11471 for benign lesions and 11600-11646 for malignant lesions so I would look there depending on the report.
