Portsmouth Regional Hospital: “We can do it together”




Q. What is the best way to monitor breast health?

A. Know your risk profile, including family history and other risk factors, and then discuss a plan of care that would include prevention and mammography screenings with your primary care provider.

Q. What kind of support exists for those dealing with breast cancer?

A. Support comes in many forms at Portsmouth Regional Hospital. We strive to build close relationships – together – between patients and our staff, including surgeons. All newly diagnosed women with breast cancer are navigated and supported by Portsmouth’s nurse navigator, Cynthia Cote, ARNP. Portsmouth offers a women’s and men’s support group for cancer survivors who are in treatment or completed treatment. In addition, a women’s breast cancer support group is being started in October which will be led by the nurse navigator.
