Can we report a code like 22900 when the mass excised was NOT a tumor? The path report indicates endometriosis. If yes, where is this point documented? Thanks.

Thank you for the query.
No, CPT code 22900 represents excision of a tumor and should only be used for the excision of a tumor which is subfacial. for endometriosis excision of abdominal wall, code 49203.
Hope it help you.
