Does anyone know of an open bx code for thyroid. Surgeon did a bx of a thyroid mass at the end of CPT 35301. All I can find are needle biopsies. I'm thinking it may be incidental. Thank you in advance.

60699 Open or incisional biopsy of deep thyroid (Unlisted proc)
I think you should go with an unlisted code here for biopsy apart from 35301 considering this limited documentation.
