Cortisone cost

Patient : I am a volleyball player and have had knee pain and swelling for months. I would like to know how much it would cost to get it drained and get a cortisone shot. I don't have the insurance plan to pay for all the procedures to get to that point and I would just like to know what the smallest amount I can pay is.
Symptoms:  swelling, pain in knee
