High risk breast cancer clinic

The Wellend Clinic was founded to stop women dying from preventable breast cancers.

Located at Attunga House, Burnside Hospital (Adelaide, South Australia), the Wellend Clinic is a state-of-the-art breast health specialist clinic, focused on individualised breast cancer risk assessment, management and prevention in high risk women.

The Wellend Clinic’s diagnostic and therapeutic treatment program specialises in the management of women at high risk of breast cancer and those with high breast density. High breast density is a leading independent risk factor for getting breast cancer and primary cause of missed cancers during routine screening.

We aim to reduce breast cancer risk and aid in early breast cancer detection for women with high breast density.
