Cancer Realities: Outliving Your Prognosis
Big Spongey Lump Inside Cheek

Hey Guys--

I've had a lump on the inside of my cheek for almost a year now. I can't tell if it's growing, but I need to get it checked out. I don't have health insurance, so here's my question:

Should I get health insurance before I get it checked out in case it's something serious? I don't quite understand how the health care system works, but if I go get it checked out WITHOUT insurance and it turns out to be something serious, I fear I'd get denied health coverage and be forced to pay for all the treatments myself.

Any advice from those with more knowledge? If it helps, I live in Los Angeles.
