CPT® code for excision of dermoid cyst from forehead that has penetrated into the skull

May I request assistance in locating the correct CPT® code for excision of dermoid cyst from the forehead that has penetrated into the skull? The measurement is 1 x 1.5 cm.

Thank you.

I would say 11442 which is an excision of a benign lesion with an excised diameter of 1.1 to 2.0 cm. If it required more than a simple closure, you can code that as well.
