removal of polyp of cervix

    Post removal of polyp of cervix
    Medical Coding Books
    During a Well Woman Exam my provider removed a polyp from the cervix with forceps. Is this billable and if so what code would I use? I can't find a code for this and am thinking it's part of the exam? The polyp was sent out for a biopsy.
    Thank you,

    I also use 57500

    57500 but be sure to use -25 on the preventative code
