Breast Nurse Navigators

New Britain and Bradley campuses: 860-827-0525 option 4

If you've been told you need a breast biopsy, or that you have breast cancer, HCC's Breast Nurse Navigators can help, by answering questions, helping you schedule appointments and providing emotional support. Your doctor may refer you to one of our Breast Nurse Navigators, or you can call her at 860-827-0525 option 4.

Breast biopsies

While 8 out of 10 biopsies do not show cancer, preparing for the procedure can be a little intimidating. If you've been told you need a breast biopsy a Breast Nurse Navigator can:
  • Educate you and your loved ones about what you will experience
  • Coordinate and schedule appointments in preparation for your biopsy
  • Provide emotional support the day of your biopsy
  • Answer any questions after your biopsy

Breast cancer

Learning you have breast cancer can be frightening and overwhelming. Your doctors, nurses and other care providers are there to help, but it can be hard to process all the information you're receiving and make choices about your care and treatment.

A Breast Nurse Navigator can:

  • Educate you and your loved ones about your individual cancer diagnosis and treatment options
  • Help you make informed decisions about your treatment and care
  • Advocate for you during treatment
  • Coordinate the team of physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals providing your care
  • Assist you with recovery and rehabilitation plans
  • Provide moral support and a sympathetic ear
