    Default Asymmetric density of the breast

    AAPC: Back to School
    What is the correct dx code for "asymmetric density of the breast"? 793.82, 793.89, or 611.72? (Or none of the above?)

    Look at 612.1 for asymmetric density of the breast...

    Default Asymmetric density of the breast

    Thanks, but in 612.1, the asymmetry of the breast refers to the the disproportion of a reconstructed breast in comparison to the native breast. I'm talking about when an area of density seen on an exam is asymmetric.
