You should use 706.2 -Sebaceous cyst.
Code 17110 represents " Destruction (eg, laser surgery, electrosurgery, cryosurgery, chemosurgery, surgical curettement), of benign lesions other than skin tags or cutaneous vascular proliferative lesions; up to 14 lesions".
Out of four diagnoses codes given by you only 706.2 - sebaceous cyst, is a benign lesion that can be billed with 17110.
