Thread: mastectomy for a man

  1. #1

    Default mastectomy for a man

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need help, this is my first one.

    This man has right breast enlargement, nodularity and pain.
    Pathology: gynecomastia
    Procedule: right subcutaneous mastectomy

    Incision was made from approx the 11:00-3:00 position. Subcutaneous tissue was dissected. Again there was an area of nodulaity over this entire area. It was elected to take all the breast tissue.

    Do I use 19300 or 19304?
