Coders must be familiar with benign and malignant masses along with actions such as shaving, destruction, and performing biopsies Shave biopsies (codes 11300-11313) use a sharp instrument to remove epidermal or dermal lesions without a full-thickness exci-sion. They are used for therapeutic removal when the lesion is..
The HCPCS/CPT®codes for lesion removal include the procurement of tissue from the same lesion by biopsy at the same patient encounter. CPT®codes 11000-11001(biopsy of skin, subcutaneous tissue and/or mucous membrane) should not be reported separately. 16 NCCI Manual - Excision of Lesions Some codes may have language that closure is not included.

Photograph to follow 1 CPT 1164x codes are used for malignant lesions of those same areas. The range of codes from 11440 to 11446 and 11640 to 11646 are distinguished based on the size of the removal. The CPT descriptors contain measurements using centimeters. For example, CPT 11441 describes a lesion that is 0.6 to 1.0 cm Excisional biopsies include two sets of codes, for excision of benign lesions (codes 11400-11471) or malignant lesions (codes 11600-11646).
