Diagnosis and treatment

The St Vincent’s Northside Breast Health Centre offers an integrated breast care service for both benign and malignant diseases of the breast.

If you come in for a screening and we detect breast changes, our expert staff is on the spot to support you. We coordinate this care in consultation with your referring doctor, who remains responsible for your care and ongoing management.
