My daughter works at a urgent care clinic and the doctor there seen me because I found a lump in my breast and he said that I needed to have a mammogram done. He said the size of the lump is 3" Wide by 3" long and now it's bigger because it's been a month in a half. I'm 44 year old and I called the Arizona's Well Women Health Check Program and they said I qualified for the program and said my information will be faxed over to the St. Joseph's Center for Women's Health and they called me and I had a appointment set up for Feb. 22, 2013 at 11:00 am. and the called me today and said that there are no funds left and that they have to put me on a waiting list and it would be in August 2013 to see if they have funds then to see me. I told them I can't wait that long. Is there any other places that could help me out with a free mammogram because the Doctor I seen said it's not good at all because of how big the lump is, and that's on my left breast and 2 small lumps on my right breast. I need help now. Someone please help?
I hope there is nothing serious there,most breast lumps are not malignant, but you certainly need to have these lumps in your breasts checked out.
I have provide for you several places to call and I hope it helps.
