A question asked by nellie42: Any breast cancer treatment options for the uninsured?
Begining Medicaid application for insurance, unemployed currently.
Recently found lump in underarm one week ago. I think insurance application will take min 3mo to process. Is my only choice to wait without treatment? I don’t know who to talk to or where to go. I’m in western NY Erie County.

The Emergency Medicaid Cancer Treament Program is fantastic. You do need to find physicians that will take this as it is retroactive. Find a physician/Hematology-Oncology/ that is more concerned about you than your money. Some will treat with the anticipation of retroactive payment…I work for such a place in Georgia……..they are wonderful….
