Women’s Health


Whether it’s the process of preparing for a new addition to the family or maintaining good health through gynecological visits and annual breast cancer screening, our team of OB/GYNs and neonatologists at Hunt Regional Healthcare offers outstanding care and services specially designed with women and infants in mind.

At Hunt Regional, our women’s health physicians offer basic gynecological care to help you maintain your good health and are also trained to diagnose and treat specific conditions such as:

As an important and necessary part of women’s health, screening for breast cancer is something that we take very seriously.

We understand that every pregnancy is a unique and special journey, and our dedicated team of healthcare professionals is here to provide you and your growing family with exceptional care, support, and guidance every step of the way.

We provide Childbirth and Family Education Classes to help prepare for your child's birth.

There are many risk factors for breast cancer and ovarian cancer. One risk factor is a family history of either of the diseases. When a woman has a relative who has had one or both of these cancers, there’s a chance the family carries a gene mutation that puts the woman at higher risk of one day developing breast or ovarian cancer. BRACAnalysis gene testing is conducted to verify that risk.

Frequently Asked Questions

Since women’s health services cover the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a woman throughout her lifetime, it includes many conditions and injuries. It’s only natural to have questions before your appointment with a women’s health specialist, no matter what your OB/GYN appointment is for.

Some of the main health issues for women are cancer, reproductive health problems, pregnancy and childbirth complications, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), urinary incontinence, fibroids, and mental health problems. Hunt Regional’s women’s health specialists are experienced in dealing with a wide range of women’s health problems.

If you are a woman with average breast cancer risk, you should start having annual mammograms by age 40 to 44. Women with higher breast cancer risk (such as having a gene mutation or a family history of the disease) should consult their doctor to determine the best time and cadence for mammograms.

Some women consider mammograms to be uncomfortable. However, the new FDA-cleared Woman’s Touch™ MammoPad™ used at Hunt Regional has a soft, warm surface that eliminates much of the discomfort often associated with mammograms.

Hunt Regional Medical Center provides BRACAnalysis gene testing in the northeast Texas area.

A BRACAnalysis test simply uses a blood sample to determine if a woman has the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene, so yes it is safe for pregnant women.

If you have an appointment scheduled with a women’s health specialist, be sure to come prepared with your insurance card, a photo ID, list of current medications, co-payment (if applicable) and any questions you may have to ask your specialist. Sometimes it’s helpful to bring a written list of questions you have so you don’t forget any during the appointment. Additionally, check with the location to see if there is paperwork you can fill out in advance of your appointment to speed up the process. If for any reason you cannot keep your women’s health appointment, please notify your doctor.

For more information or if you have a women’s health question not answered here, please contact your physician.

Post-Mastectomy Accessories for Women

We understand that when a woman has had a mastectomy, she faces a world of changes in her appearance as she confronts the fight of her life. Difficulty affording post-treatment accessories including wigs, compression garments and prostheses can greatly impact a patient’s outlook on recovery and life following a breast cancer diagnosis.
