Dr Oz: Free Mammograms
Dr Oz and CareNow saw almost 4000 patients during their Free Health Clinic Day. Doctor Oz stated that one woman stayed in his mind. Yvonne had no health insurance and now her life hung in the balance. Three years ago, Yvonne lost her job and soon after, she discovered a lump the size of an orange on her right breast. When she heard about the free health clinic, she believed it was a Godsend. The lump on her breast went right through her skin. When she was examined by Dr Oz, he stated that he could smell the mass that contained fungus. Dr Oz looked at the mass and was shocked. He had never seen anything like that before. The puss-like mass was 6-7 inches across. Immediately, Dr Oz sent Yvonne to the UCLA Family Health Center for a mammogram. Yvonne was scared (rightfully so) but got the mammogram. Yvonne’s doctor looked at the mass. His biggest concern was that the tumor had spread. Even if removing the breast, the tumor may still be spreading throughout her body. This was the worst case he had seen in his many years of practice.
