Prevention and Survivorship

Women’s wellness

The Women’s Wellness Clinic at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center offers wellness-focused follow-up care for women who have completed cancer treatment for a gynecologic or breast cancer. We also monitor women at increased risk for developing cancer. Women who are shifting their focus from cancer treatment to recovery receive a wellness plan and cancer prevention strategies that include information on good nutrition, fitness and emotional support.

Visit the Women’s Wellness Clinic if you:

  • Want information about cancer prevention—to do everything you can to keep your cancer from coming back
  • Would like help dealing with some of the lingering side effects of cancer treatment, such as lymphedema, anxiety, or depression

The Women’s Wellness Clinic offers the care and services you need without leaving the medical supervision of the oncologists you know and trust. Routine checkups, including mammograms, Pap smears, and various scans, are an important part of taking care of yourself after cancer, and all are provided at the Women’s Wellness Clinic.
