Testes and Scrotum Ultrasound Scan

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.
