About eight months ago, 45-year-old Polly “P.J.” Jensen noticed a lump under her left arm.
She was unable to afford health insurance and ineligible for Medicaid.
“So I kind of set it aside at the time – something I should have never done,” P.J. said. “Something every women should never do.”
After a while, the mild discomfort became painful tenderness. “It got to the point that I couldn’t wear anything tight around that area.”
She finally went to the doctor early this month.
