Hello and welcome, my name is***** and I would like to help you today.

Now if the mass has already been found, then I must warn you that most insurance companies won't be willing to cover it. They may still insure Diamond but they would exclude any claims for her mass or anything relating to it. I'm fact, these companies only tend to cover conditions that arise from 14 days past the insurance starting. So from the point of view of this mass, insurance likely won't carry much benefit. So you may find opening a savings account for her and paying monthly into that would be more beneficial in case she needs any treatment for this mass in the future.

Please take care,

Dr. B
