mesenteric lymph node biopsy

Annie Posted Mon 24th of November, 2014 20:47:01 PM

Can you help me with the code for a mesenteric node biopsy. The path came back as a benign lymph node. Also, the icd 9 code for tubulovillous adenoma of the colon.

For mesenteric lymph nodes biopsy, you should use unlisted code 38999, Unlisted procedure, hemic or lymphatic system.

ICD code 211.3, Benign neoplasm of colon.

Thanks !!
