Monday went in to my doctor to check out a lump. Thursday was the ultrasound. By Friday morning I was in with my Urologist being told that I have a testicular mass that is assumed to be cancerous and I will be going in for surgery on Monday.
This all happened so incredibly fast I’ve had little time to process what this all means. This is my first surgery and the thought of chemo afterwards terrifies me. I’m trying to take that one step at a time. What scares me the most is trying to figure out how I am going to afford all of this. I would really love some advice or to hear other folks experience in how they afford their TC treatments.
I have health insurance, which covers 60% of the cost for speciality meds. I’m so worried that if I can’t pay for this up front that I will be denied the proper medication. Are there payment plans for this kind of thing for people who are of humble means?
Thanks in advance for the advice.
