About the Private Testicular Scan
During the scan you will be asked to uncover your scrotal area. A small amount of jelly will be placed over your scrotum. An ultrasound camera will then be placed on top and moved along. This will result in a picture appearing on the ultrasound monitor and patient TV which will be translated by a medical ultrasound practitioner. The examination itself usually lasts around 10-15 minutes and is pain free. At the end of the examination a brief explanation of the results may be offered. A formal ultrasound scan report with any recommendations will be sent to you which you can take to your regular healthcare professional.
Objective of the Private Testicular Scan
The purpose of the private testicular ultrasound scan is to provide an assessment of the scrotum including testicles, epididymides & area around testicles by using ultrasound.
This may be because you / your health care professional can feel a lump in the scrotum e.g. epididymal cyst or perhaps you are experiencing pain or discomfort in the testicular area possibly due to an infection such as epididymitis or due to swollen testicular veins (varicocele). Alternatively, there may be a concern about testicular cancer and you have been referred for a testicular scan by your doctor but are unwilling to wait. Even if it’s just for reassurance and peace of mind, whatever the case maybe we would be happy to assist and can book your scan with minimal waiting and speedy results.

What does the Private Testicular Scan involve?
During the scan, you will be asked to uncover the area being scanned, hence we advise to wear suitable loose clothing and a small amount of ultrasound gel will be placed over your skin.
An ultrasound camera (‘probe’) will then be placed on top and moved along and around the area. This results in a picture appearing on the ultrasound monitor and patient TV which will be translated by the clinical specialist/ medical practitioner.
The ultrasound scan itself usually lasts around 10-15 minutes and is pain-free. At the end of the scan, a verbal summary of the results will be provided, as well as your opportunity to ask any questions.
