      Thank you everyone for your input and response. I am happy to report that I found a hospital near by that will do the diagnostic ultrasound and they gave me a price that we are able to afford. My appointment is set for 2/13/12 and then the results will be sent to the doctor who ordered the test. Not sure what to expect after that but am hoping for the best.

    Oh No (Diagnosed): In 2008 my mother beat her breast cancer and was with me when just yesterday I found out I may have breast cancer. The doctor found 2 lumps in my right breast and wants me to have an ultrasound done ASAP but with little money and no insurance I'm not sure how to do that. I am worried about my daughters as the doctor mentioned having a genetic test done to see if we carry the gene.

    Oh No (Health insurance issue): When I was first diagnosed I had insurance but then we lost our home and moved and now I am without insurance and now have 2 lumps in my breast and no way of finding out if it's cancer.

    Oh No (Diagnosed): I actually started my journey to my diagnosis in January and the doctors kept it from me until July. The frustrating part is the inaction the doctors have chosen and feeling that someone should do something.
