Your First Appointment

Welcome to the Breast and Ovarian Cancer Prevention Program (BOCPP) at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. Your first appointment will be at the main SCCA clinic on Lake Union. This appointment usually lasts 2-4 hours. We recommend that you bring a friend or family member with you to help keep track of the information that your team will be giving you.

Forms You Need for Your First Appointment

Please download, print and complete the Breast and Ovarian Cancer Prevention Program Intake Form , BOCPP Cancer Worry questionnaire, medication history form. These forms should be completed and faxed (206-288-6406), emailed (prevention@seattlecca.org), or mailed (GICPP, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, 825 Eastlake Ave E, E2-102, Seattle, WA 98109-1023) at least 1-2 weeks prior to your appointment. Your providers will review these, along with your relevant medical and family records, several days prior to meeting with you.

At your appointment, you will meet with a team of breast and ovarian cancer experts, including a medical oncologist, a genetic counselor, a nutritionist, and a gynecological oncologist. You'll receive information about hereditary and non-hereditary breast and ovarian cancer risk factors and strategies for risk reduction.
