Linda, go to your hospital and ask them what programs they have in place for women in your situation. Oftentimes there are federal programs that will cover the cost of a mammogram or other diagnostic testing for breast issues. Our post, mammograms for underserved women, will tell you more. Good luck - PJH

Linda, this link will take you to information that may help you.  Most mammogram centers have grants or other programs to help uninsured women.  I know the hospital where I get my mammograms has signs in several places explaining that they can help people who can't afford mammograms.  You probably need to see a primary care physician for the rash.  It might turn out to be eczema or some other harmless problem.  As I mentioned in reply to your other question the rash could also be a cancer symptom, so a mammogram should be part the diagnositic process for your symptoms.
