not sure where to ask

Im male 21 living in Garden Grove CA. I have some lumps in my chest, a mole that's irregular and an area of skin that's not necessarily a rash but looks similar. I looked up what some of those symptoms could be and cancer is the scariest. I have no insurance and no job what are my options? I hope its not cancer but with that as a possibility I definitely want to be sure either way. I don't have family to rely on either, just really need help/advice from someone who has more knowledge. Thanks for any help.

Dear jordanx11,

As for health insurance, under the new law, as of January 1st 2014, you cannot be denied due to pre-existing conditions; in addition to that you might qualify for Medical or at the least premium subsidy.

I suggest you contact Covered CA (1-800-300-1506), to determine what you qualify for; they can also help you enroll right over the phone.

I suggest you go to the hospital to check it! This may require professionals to judge.
