Hi - First, check with your local hospital. Ask social services what you should do with no insurance, and a large lump in the breast - I suspect they'll have some advice. Next, access the link in the box right above your question - you'll find the resources there you need. Good luck - PJH

i just made an appt. here. it's only $160 for an exam & mammogram. a lil cheaper if you can prove you are low income. also doesn't appear to have any age limit.

Through your state of California program. Read our post on free mammograms for underserved women for complete information. Good luck - PJH

Our daugher lives in Ontario, California. She recently discovered/found/felt a big lump in her left breast. She is 32 yrs old, has 4 children, a son who is 15, a 12 yr. old daughter, and 9 yr old identical twin boys. She breast fed all 4 babies. My mother (now deceased) was in remission of breast cancer for over 40 yrs. This had nothing to do with her death. I had 2 cysts removed from my breast, 1 fluid, 1 solid, but thank GOD, those we benign. Her sister, like me, also had  benign cyst removed from her breast, so you see, the cycle continues.

Now, to her situation,  she lives with the father of her children, but they are not married, therefore, she has NO medical insurance. We are trying to find a place (close to Ontario preferably) that she can go to at no cost, or atleast some kind of discount. If you can help us with this problem, we would be so ever grateful for this/your help. I don't know if you are a parent or not, but if you are, as a parent, I'm sure you can feel the fright that we as parents are going through, plus the fact that we live in a different state, well, we're sure that goes without saying. Again, thank you so much for your help, and we will be awaiting your answer.

Hi - Please take a look at this post on mammograms for underserved women. Each state has a somewhat different program, but all states have something... Start with the state of California's Web site on the Center for Disease Control's site - that'll be your best bet, OK? Best of luck to her, and to you as you guide her through this- PJH
