Overview

Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is a leading center in the treatment of salivary gland cancer. SCCA's parent organization UW Medicine is one of only three facilities in the United States that offers neutron therapy, an especially powerful kind of radiation therapy that's been shown to be effective against salivary gland tumors and some other forms of cancer.
 
As a patient here, you'll be cared for by a team of doctors, including a medical oncologist, radiation oncologist, and a surgeron. SCCA was formed, in part, to bring promising new treatments to patients faster. This means that people who have salivary gland cancer will find more treatment options at SCCA than might be found elsewhere, including participation in one of the clinical trials conducted at SCCA and its parent organizations, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and UW Medicine.
