What is the correct diagnosis code for scrotal mass? R19.09- (Other intra-abdominal and pelvic swelling, mass and lump) or N50.89-(Other specified disorders of the male genital organs) ??? Thanks!

Thanks for your question.
Code R19.09 is not related to genital organs. Since there is no proper code for scrotal mass, code N50.89 (Other specified disorders of the male genital organs) is appropriate to report this condition.
Please feel free to write if you have any question.
