    Young pt came in thinking she had a breast lumps on outer skin of both breasts, with no other symptoms. After exam, Dr found nothing, just normal breasts. Where should I look for code to bill? Tried all symptoms and found nothing.

    True but if there aren't any other signs/symtoms you're somewhat limited.
