Our testes and scrotum ultrasound scans are a painless, non-invasive way to check for disorders with the testicles, scrotum and epididymis (tubes surrounding the testicles).

The scans are available to patients over 18 years old. Unlike other ultrasound scans, you will not need to drink lots of fluids or fast before this procedure, you simply need to wear loose fitting clothing.

We recommend having a testicular ultrasound if you find an abnormal lump or mass in your testes, suspect you have testicular torsion (a twisted testicle), are experiencing abnormal pain or swelling or want to determine the cause of infertility.

What is the purpose of a Testes & Scrotum scan?

Scrotal and testicular ultrasounds allow us to identify and diagnose problems with your testicles and the surrounding area. Our testicular ultrasound provides real time images so our sonographer can observe abnormalities in your testicular tissue, problems with the epididymis or blood flow.

Testes and Scrotum Ultrasound FAQs

What do I need to wear for the scan?

For your comfort, it’s best to wear loose fitting clothes. You may be asked to change into a gown.

Can I eat and drink before my scan?

For a scrotal and testicular ultrasound, you can continue to eat and drink as normal before your scan.

What do I need to bring to my ultrasound?

We recommend you bring your hospital notes (if you already have them) as this will help our sonographers determine if a referral is required.

Will you advise me of any abnormalities?

Our sonographers will give their professional opinion on any abnormalities they come across, providing a full report and advising you if a visit to a health practitioner is necessary. Our private scans should not, however, replace your NHS scans.

Do I still need to have an NHS scan after my Ultrasound Plus scan?

Yes, our testicular ultrasound scans are a complementary service that should be used alongside the services of the NHS.

What happens if a referral is required?

We advise all of our clients to notify their GP/Healthcare provider before they come for a testes and scrotum ultrasound scan. When you arrive at the clinic, you will fill out a registration from where details of your healthcare provider/GP will be requested. If your testicular ultrasound scan shows any abnormalities that require further medical attention, you are responsible for seeking the help of your GP.
