1.  Intralesional destruction of SCC

Posted 12 days ago
i saw an earlier post about this but wanted to clarify again. What is the most appropriate code for intralesional 5-fu for SCC? Is it 96405 and J9190? Other options that could make sense - destruction of malignant lesion? Intralesional  injection? Thank you!

​Consider J9190 reported with 96405 for the intralesional chemotherapy administration.
