Removal of sebaceous cyst from breast cpt code

The Preoperative dx and postoperative dx was "Right Breast Sebaceous cyst" we used cpt code 19120.
We were told this was just skin subcutaneous tissue so therefore should be coded as excision of benign skin lesion 114XX.. because this was not actual breast tissue.
Op note: The skin and subcutaneous tissue surrounding the right breast sebaceous cyst was anesthetized and elliptical incision was made around the cyst 'Dissection was carried down with cautery into the subcutaneous tissue'
