Haywood Breast Center
at Haywood Regional Medical Center

Haywood Breast Center’s program is designed to provide each patient with comprehensive and compassionate care.  Beyond having state-of-the-art technology for early detection and the most current treatments available for breast cancer, each patient is viewed as an individual.

A multidisciplinary case review, involving medical and radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, surgeons and the patient navigator is conducted for each patient.

Patients who are diagnosed with breast cancer will have access to a patient navigator, a specially trained registered nurse who offers educational and emotional support from the time of diagnosis until recovery. Your navigator is there to assist your family as well.

Convenient support services include the Cancer Resource Center, support groups, and peer counseling.  

The HOPEFul Living Cancer Support Group is open to any woman who has experienced cancer. The HOPEFul Living Ladies are a vibrant group of women committed to making the most of life, providing support and encouragement for those fighting cancer and giving back to the community around them. In partnership with American Cancer Society, HRMC  offers Look Good Feel Better, a class that provides skin and beauty care information to women who are undergoing cancer treatments.

Those who need a prosthesis or mastectomy bra can be fitted by a professional mastectomy services fitter locally. This service is offered in partnership with Pink Regalia, and most medical insurances will cover the cost of the supplies if a doctor’s prescription is provided. If a wig is needed and you cannot afford one our center will make arrangements for you to come in and be fitted and receive a wig. The Center also offers educational materials and more.

We do offer lymphedema PT. Following surgery, a certified physical therapist is available for lymphedema therapy to help minimize arm swelling and to teach women how to identify the signs and symptoms of Lymphedema so that treatment can be started in a timely way.
