My wife is a Mexican national. We are in the process of getting her green card. She says she feels 2 lumps. I don't. She had her first mammogram last year at age 49. I need to know how much it would cost to pay out of pocket. Or if you know of any reputable place in Nogales Sonora. From what I have seen their health care system is a joke. I will also try to call in the morning. I am a US citizen
