Women who have undergone treatment for a gynecological cancer or breast cancer find themselves in a period of transition and a new stage of life. Some cancer survivors slowly begin to experience their survivorship as the “new normal.” They begin a life-long journey as cancer survivors, which will include ongoing medical care for their physical and emotional health needs.
The Women’s Wellness Clinic at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) offers wellness-focused follow-up care for women who have completed cancer treatment for a gynecologic cancer or breast cancer. This clinic is part of the Women’s Center on the third floor of the main SCCA building. Women come here when it’s time to shift their focus from cancer treatment to recovery. Each receives a Wellness Plan that includes good nutrition, improved 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.
Women at High Risk
Women who are at high risk for breast or ovarian cancer and who have been seen at our Breast and Ovarian Cancer Prevention Program may be referred to the Women’s Wellness Clinic for routine medical exams and close monitoring. You do not have to have had cancer to come to the clinic. You may come for help with cancer prevention.
