I need the input from other coders. A provider documents in his exam: "Lymph: no lymphadenopathy in neck, axillae, groin or extremities"

How many "bullets" would this statement garner for 1997 guidelines?

Can you break down the single bullet in the lymphatic exam? Under the lymphatic exam there is a single bullet for lymphatic system/body area: "palpation of lymph nodes in neck, axillae, groin and/or other location". Would this not be one bullet?

Now under the general mutli-system examination: the neck, axillae, groin, other are individual bullets.
