Thanks for your question.
In this case, you should report code 58120 (Dilation and curettage, diagnostic and/or therapeutic (nonobstetrical)). This code includes any number of biopsies taken.
Please feel free to write if you have any question.

Code 57520 is reported when conization of the cervix is done using a scalpel or a laser or fulguration.
There is no documentation of conization of cervix. So, we provided you the code 58120. Please provide us information if conization of cervix is also done, so that we may provide you the correct code.
