    If I was you I would make and appointment with my OBGYN - as your OBGYN will know which steps to take and it will be a great relief to you to know what is going on. I am not sure where you are located but a lot of the county health dept have free mammogram screenings - I know that everything costs money but catching whatever early is better than waiting until later. If it is an infection antibotic's will help clear it up. We can only hope and prayer that it is not cancer.

    Take care

    I agree with Mary you need to get in to see your OB/GYN or someone asap. This month being breast cancer awareness there is a lot of clinics and hospitals have free checkups going on so you should check into this in your area. Either way you need to get this check out as soon as you can like make calls today right now is a very good time. Hospitals can not turn you away for not having insurance and they have to help work out a payment plan I have paid as little as $5 a month and they have to take it and can not send it to collection because it is a payment. So please do not put it off any longer get it check out because the sooner the better plus knowing is a lot better then worrying. If it is something the sooner you get care and tests done the sooner you get better. If infection the sooner you can get on and antibiotic is very important so it doesn't get worse and spread throughtout your body.
    So your job is to call your doctor or get to an ER today and have it checked out to ease your mind and for your well being. I wish you all the best and pray it is only an infection. Sending angel hugs your way Roberta,
    P.S. Please come back to let us know how you are doing and what you may find out. We will keep you in our thoughts and hearts.

    I agree with the others that your body is trying to tell you something, and it is now up to you to follow-thru!

    Regarding financial matters. please read thru the "Tips" on the right side of this page as there are several posts that deal with that.

    Know we will be sending you tons of good wishes that is it nothing of great concern. Please let us know how you are doing.

    There are many resources close to you, The Huntsman Cancer Center at the U of U, Intermountain Health Care has programmes available and check the Davis County Hospital - also try this clinic, not sure if they have on in the Roy area. It is the Hope Clinic - . Check with the Davis County Health Dept to see what programmes they have available.

    Good Luck

    Also remember that if these places mary told you about charge you, then when you get the bill call them an make payment arrangements with them.
    You can set up monthly payment schedules as low as $10.00/month. The important thing is to make sure you pay it each month!
    Good luck - Mary gave you some great places to go in your area.

    Please contact your local American Cancer Society office. This is Breast Cancer Awareness month and there are many, many locations that are offering free mammograms. You just need to dig a little to get some free or reduced-cost assistance.

    Good luck!
