what code would you use for adenomatous anorectal nodule.

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!
