Q: How you would code SSF#4 (Tumor Deposits) for a colon primary when you have a polypectomy and no other surgery. The tumor was in-situ. Is this coded to 000 for none or is it more appropriate to code to 998 for a polypectomy for no surgical resection of the primary site was performed?
A: Code to 998, No surgical resection of primary site. A polypectomy removes the polyp or the cancer but is not a surgical resection of the primary site.
