As part of the assessment you will undergo ultrasound scans & blood tests. For the ultrasound 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.
This blood test is just like a standard blood test.
All of our health assessments scans are optional. You must be at least 16 years old and you should have no existing medical condition or treatment pending that relates to the test you are booking. If you are in any doubt about having any type of scan, you should consult your GP.
