Overview

The terms “endometrial cancer” and “uterine cancer” are sometimes used interchangeably, but they don’t mean exactly the same thing.

Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) has more gynecologic oncologists than any other medical center or clinic in the Pacific Northwest who treat all types of gynecologic cancers, including endometrial, cervical, ovarian, and vulvar cancers, uterine sarcoma, and gestational trophoblastic disease.

Where You’re Treated First Matters Most

The most important decision a person with cancer will make is deciding where to get treated. Studies have shown that patients who begin their treatment at a top regional cancer center, like SCCA, have better outcomes than those who start their treatment elsewhere. And here’s why:

  • Expert care: SCCA doctors treat only cancer and specialize in specific cancer types, such as gynecologic cancer. They have a deep understanding of their specialty since they diagnose and treat thousands of cancer cases every year. This experience makes better outcomes possible. Your care comes from the combined expertise of our founding organizations, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, UW Medicine, and Seattle Children’s.
  • Newest treatments: Our doctors have access to all the latest developments in treating cancer. SCCA was formed, in part, to bring promising new treatments to patients faster. This means more treatment options here than you might find elsewhere, like the chance to participate in clinical studies.

In the News

Newsweek explored the differences between getting treated at a top cancer center and a local community hospital. Read how the difference in outcomes can be striking. Read the article here.

Follow-Up Care

When your treatment is complete, we’ll keep close watch on your health with periodic follow-up visits. Many of our patients later go on to receive care through our Women’s Wellness Clinic, specially designed to provide follow-up care for women who are five years out from their primary treatment.
