Can someone just verify that my coding software here isn't playing tricks on me? Procedure code 53210 is "Urethrectomy, total, including cystostomy; female" and diagnosis code 185 is "Malignant neoplasm of prostate"...
I checked the coding relationship between the two and it stated that 53210 with dx 185 is a valid pair? I'm confused why a procedure for a female is valid with a dx that's for a male.
