Being diagnosed with breast cancer can be confusing and overwhelming, propelling you into an unfamiliar world of new doctors and tests. The breast cancer nurse navigator at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Waxahachie can help.
The navigator gets involved as soon as a patient has a suspicious mammogram or ultrasound and a biopsy is recommended. Not only does she provide support during the biopsy, but she also calls the next day to see whether you have concerns or questions.
Throughout the process, our breast cancer nurse navigator serves as the main contact person, helping schedule appointments, explain the diagnosis and treatment, plan for care, and connect with social or financial resources needed.
She also organizes a monthly breast cancer support group, where patients can learn more about issues that concern them and share their stories and struggles with others who understand what it is like to face breast cancer.
