Cracking the Code

Coding Excision of a Tumor

CPT Assistant indicates that when a lipoma is removed from the deeper subcutaneous layer, or beyond (fascia or muscle) then the appropriate code for removal will be found in the musculoskeletal section of the CPT manual. The index entry would be:
Excision
Tumor
Specific location

If the lipoma were located superficially, the removal of the lipoma would be coded to excision of a benign lesion. The appropriate code would fall into the CPT code range 11400-11446 based on location and size of the lipoma removed.
