I’m sure it will turn out to be nothing, but I’m glad you’re getting it looked at ASAP. And I’m glad that your husband is awesome and did the exact right thing! 

Also, totally agree. To rage-y levels actually. People who complain about Obamacare make me very angry.

I am so sorry. I know first hand how scary a breast lump is.

Wait until the 1st and then on the 2nd go and see a doctor ASAP.

For now is the lump fixed or does it move? If it moves it is more likely to be a cyst. But this is not medical advice just advice. Hard and fixed then it may be cancer but it may not.

I don’t condone lying but given the unfair medical system in your country I would not mention it at all. Do not mention to the doctor that you felt it weeks ago because an insurance company may use that information to knock back your claim. Say you felt it the day before (the 1st).

Best wishes for a benign diagnosis, and prayers for a rapid resolution to this understandably frightening development!

You completely made me glad I live in Australia.

Big hugs to you, and I would say go see the Dr the SECOND you are covered.

Fingers crossed that it’s a cyst or benign. Glad you are covered so it’s not a pre-existing conditon. You should still get info from your grad school insurance on cobra (not ideal, but another option).
