Testicular Ultrasound Scan

What conditions can be detected with a testicular ultrasound scan?

Testicular Ultrasound is usually the first line method for examining the testicles and surrounding tissues.

It is usually carried out when a patient notices a lump or feels pain in their testicles or scrotum.

Ultrasound maybe one of many investigations you require and you should consult your doctor to ensure that any other necessary investigations are arranged.

How long is the appointment?

20 minutes is required to complete the examination.

How much does it cost?

The cost of this scan is £95.

You can combine any other package with this package for an additional charge of £40 per package.

Please note that this may not be possible for certain packages eg musculo-skeletal as this is a very specialised area and only Sonographers with a specialist interest in this area will be able to perform this examination.

How should I prepare for the scan?

No preparation is required.

What will I experience during the examination?

The examination will be carried out by a qualified Sonographer. The procedure is non-invasive and painless. The Sonographer will move a transducer lubricated with warm gel over your scrotum to obtain necessary images.

When do I get the results?

We will send a signed report of our findings to your doctor. You should then arrange an appointment with your GP who will explain our findings to you.

We feel that your doctor is best placed to explain the findings to you because he will have details of blood tests and other investigations that may have been carried out.
