You are at the center of everything we do at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA). Here, we surround you with a team of specialists who work together closely to provide expert, targeted care and compassionate support throughout your treatment and beyond.
Because our experts see so many people with thyroid nodules and tumors, we have a deep understanding of how to evaluate your condition and how select and combine treatments to get the best possible results — even for rare cancers that many doctors in the community never see once in their career.

Why choose SCCA for thyroid cancer treatment?
Experienced thyroid specialists
Your skilled and highly experienced team includes a surgeon, endocrinologist, nuclear medicine doctor, pathologist, dedicated nurses, and if needed, a medical oncologist. These UW Medicine specialists work together closely to plan and coordinate all your care so it’s thorough and also easier on you.
Comprehensive thyroid cancer treatment
While thyroid cancer treatment can vary widely at other facilities, we follow guidelines from the National Comprehensive Cancer Network and the American Thyroid Association to make sure you receive the treatments you need (and none that you don’t). We offer a range of treatments, including surgery, radioactive iodine therapy, targeted therapies and thyroid hormone therapy.
Where you’re treated first matters most
Studies have shown that the first treatment you receive for cancer is by far the most important. Patients who begin treatment at SCCA often have better outcomes than those who started treatment elsewhere. Many studies show patients have fewer complications if they have thyroid cancer surgery at a center, like ours, that does a high volume of these operations.
Thyroid cancer clinical trials
To give you access to the most innovative therapies, SCCA unites the leading researchers and cancer specialists of Fred Hutch and UW Medicine so you can take part in thyroid cancer clinical studies not available everywhere.
A national leader in cancer care
SCCA is the leading cancer treatment center in the region and among the top nationally, according to U.S. News & World Report.
NCI comprehensive cancer center
We are a comprehensive cancer center, a designation from the National Cancer Institute that reflects our scientific leadership and the depth and breadth of our research to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.
