Patient Care

Our services

Wellend Health was founded with a simple purpose in mind, to stop women dying of preventable breast cancer.

 

We improve the standard of care for women at high risk of developing breast cancer. Our advanced patient treatment program, incorporating hormonal therapeutics demonstrated to reduce high mammographic breast density, reduces women’s risk of developing breast cancer and aids in early detection.

 

Our research and development is run by Wellend’s sister company Chavah, a biotechnology company specialising in the development of hormonal therapeutics targeting breast health.

Breast Density Treatment

Reduces breast density (as seen on a mammogram), which reduces the risk of getting breast cancer.

Breast Density Treatment

Reduce your risk of breast cancer

density

Women with high breast density have increased risk of breast cancer and false negative mammograms. It has been clearly demonstrated that reducing breast density significantly reduces the risk of developing breast cancer or having a cancer missed during a routine mammogram. As part of our advanced patient care program patients undertake more comprehensive imaging and hormonal regulation to reduce mammographic breast density. A positive side-effect to this treatment is that it improves hormonal availability, which improves overall wellbeing.

What does our patient care do?

Reduces breast density.

Reducing mammographic breast density has been show to significantly reduce the risk of getting breast cancer.

Improves early breast cancer detection.

Lower mammographic breast density improves early cancer detection and reduces mortality.

Reduces side-effects caused by inadequate hormone availability.

Our patient care has been shown to reduce the debilitating symptoms caused by lack of hormonal availability during menopause.

About breast density

What is breast density?

wellend


Breasts are categorised as dense if the ‘active’ tissue (lobules, ducts and fibrous connective tissue) create thick white “clouds” on a mammogram that make it difficult to see cancers. 

 

Abnormal or high breast density is a manifestation of hormonal dysfunction that is genetic and/or acquired (eg caused by external factors such as pollution or by taking hormonal altering medication such as contraception, HRT; or not having children or having first child at 30+, etc ).

 

Breast density isn’t based on breast size, shape, firmness or lumpiness. It can only be detected by a mammogram.

What does it mean to have high mammographic 
breast density?

percentage

Women with high mammographic breast density are 4 to 10 times more likely to develop breast cancer than women with low breast density, depending on their other individual risk factors. Therefore, reducing high mammographic breast density will reduce the risk of developing breast cancer.

Dense breast tissue makes it more difficult to see breast cancers on a mammogram and is the number one reason cancers are missed on mammograms. Consequently, it is important to seek out specialist advice with regard to your breast screening as a screening mammogram on its own is not likely to be sufficient. An MRI or ultrasound may also be necessary. At Wellend we ensure our patients undergo a specialised ShearWave ultrasound in addition to other diagnostic screening to minimise the risk of a ‘false-normal’ diagnosis.

Hormonal Balance

Ease symptoms – Improve overall health

 

More women than ever before are suffering from unwanted symptoms due to hormonal dysfunction.

Our treatment

Many women opt not to take conventional HRT because they are either too young, or are put off by the side-effects which include increased breast cancer risk, blood clots and stroke.

Hormonal treatments offered at Wellend Health are tailored for a woman's age and hormonal profile. Hormonal balance is improved without the negative side effects of conventional HRT.
