Mons pubis cyst

Randa Posted Mon 19th of March, 2012 14:59:04 PM

Looking for CPT code for excision of mons pubis cyst removal. Note says: lidocaine 2% with epi, then 11 blade used to make a 0.5 cm incision and cyst removed with forceps.

Thanks,

For excision of local lesion use 11420-11426,11620-11626

She didn't remove a skin lesion. She removed a cyst that was under the skin. So I don't see how those code sets would apply?

Mons, which is the simplest vulvar structure. It is at the very top, Use 56620 if more than skin is involved
