I have no health insurance and no money. Absolutely none. I'm living hand to mouth on less than $200 a week.
Today I noticed my nipple was bleeding. (I am female.) I am 26, I can't feel any lumps with my fingers (I have really, REALLY small breasts so there's not much tissue for a lump to hide in). I also had a peircing in that nipple that I took out a year ago. I thought it had totally healed over by now though. I don't run, haven't felt any pain and haven't noticed any other health complications.
I have no health care resources. Even if I could save up to visit a doctor, I wouldn't be able to afford continuing visits for diagnostic purposes or treatment. I could, however, maybe borrow money from my parents to figure out what's up with this, IF i can find a low cost clinic. Do either of the colleges, UCLA or USC have a low cost clinic? I've looked at both of their health department websites but can't tell anything about pricing. If not, Is the Hollywood Free Clinic on Sunset ok? What do others in LA reccomend?
