    what code would you use for adenomatous anorectal nodule.

  2. SuperCoder Posted 4 month(s) ago

    An adenoma is a tumor of glandular tissue, that has not (yet) gained the properties of a cancer. So if documentation says adenomatous nodule of rectum the code will be D12.8.

    But, there is no specific code for anorectal, the codes are for anus and rectum seperetely. 

    Hope that helps!
