Mercy, the price of medical services varies widely from one part of the country to another. One source i looked at gave the average price of a digital mammogram for both breasts in the U.S. as $270, but you will need to ask at your local center. If price is an issue, you might even want to comparison shop in your city. This list of places that offer free and reduced-priced mammograms may also be helpful. However, these programs are primarily for screening mammograms, and I don't know if they would cover women already diagnosed with breast cancer. Talk to the hospital's social worker about ways to help you manage the costs of treatment. You may be eligible for programs that will reduce it, and/or they can help you set up a payment plan that you can afford.
