In case you come here first (have already sent this to the ListServ) diag help..

Melanie Posted Wed 10th of February, 2010 22:01:35 PM

Patient had a 43239 performed.

Diag is 530.11 and then the physician hand-wrote "antral nodule"...

Im having difficulty locating verbiage close enough for this..

Anyone out there who can help.. this would be wonderful!

HI, Mel, I would use 537.9 for this. Instead of starting with nodule, try mass, then gastric. Have a good day!

I almost leaned toward that but I try to avoid the 'unspecified' if there is something better... Thanks Deb! 8-)
