Thread: Excision labial cyst

    Default Excision labial cyst

    AAPC: Back to School
    Would I use a 1- code or is there a code in the 5- section for an excision of a labial cyst? Thank you.

    Look at code 56405 and see if this description fits your op note. There is also a Bartholin cyst removal 56420 and 56440 if it is a Bartholin gland cyst

    I would use a 11420-11426 code, it explains as "physician excises a benign lesion, including the margins, except a skin tag, on the geitalia. The physician may suture the wound simply.

    All of the 5 codes that I found weren't excisions.
    Good Luck
