    Hi! When I am coding for our hospitalists and they state "right lung mass" (based on a chest x-ray) should we use neoplasm, uncertain behavior 239.1??

    The doctors seem to keep using 786.6 - swelling, mass or lump in chest.

    Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

    786.6 is appropriate.
