NEW – There’s now an accredited Breast Imaging Center of Excellence right here in Greenwood. Click here for more information.
The Cancer Center at Self Regional Healthcare is dedicated to providing our patients with integrated and comprehensive cancer treatments that are designed with the patient in mind.
People with the most common types of cancer – breast, prostate, lung, colon, gynecologic and skin cancers, as well as many other cancers, can receive the care they need close to home at Self Regional Cancer Center. We combine the latest technologies with nature-inspired design and compassionate care to treat the disease and help patients regain control of their health. Our physicians use a multidisciplinary and individualized approach to treatment. Here, all services are in one place, providing a sanctuary where the body, mind and spirit are treated as one.
One of the most powerful tools for fighting cancer is radiation therapy. Our board-certified radiation oncologists and specially trained staff provide a wide spectrum of radiotherapy services including:
- Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT)
- Image-guided Radiotherapy (IGRT)
- Sterotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT)
- Intracranial Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS)
- Partial Breast Irradiation
We follow the National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines, which allow us to provide our patients with care that is high in quality and effectiveness. Our board-certified oncologists/hematologists and specially trained staff provide patients with a wide range of hematology/medical oncology services including:
- Advanced Genomic Testing
- Oral Chemotherapy
Surgery is a vital component of cancer treatment and often is used in conjunction with radiation therapy or chemotherapy. Our board certified, specialized surgeons are prepared to help those diagnosed with cancer who can benefit from surgery.

Mobile Mammography Unit
Our Mobile Mammography Unit is a new convenient way to receive yearly breast screenings.
The bus features high-quality digital images and is performed by a female ARRT registered mammographer in a completely private environment. The images are read by Self Regional’s dedicated breast radiologist. Appointments and walk-ins are welcome and take only about 15 minutes. The bus travels to six different counties and can be scheduled for your place of business to serve your employees. Click here to learn more about the Mobile Mammography Unit.
3D mammography, also known as tomosynthesis, combines multiple breast X-rays to create a three-dimensional picture of the breast. These multiple images help doctors see a clearer view of breast masses, making it easier to detect breast cancer. Learn more about 3D Mammography here.
