    Not as scary as they sound, testicular ultrasounds are much more common than anyone may think! The team at The Ultrasound Co shed some light on what to expect if your practitioner refers you or your partner for further investigation.

    Numerous reasons to perform a testicular ultrasound including:

    • Lumps
    • Swelling
    • Pain/discomfort
    • Post trauma
    • Fertility investigation

    Typically, more straightforward, and comfortable than perceived. Patient will be changed into a gown before removing any undergarments and covered by a blanket. Scan typically takes approximately 20 minutes and may involve assessment of the kidneys. Many pictures are documented – this is routine and not to be a concern.


    Important for numerous reasons:

    • Differentiate benign appearing lumps compared to malignant appearing lumps.
    • Characterise swelling (e.g. hydrocele/varicocele).
    • Assessing the size and appearances of structures (volume, microlithiasis, etc).
    • Assessing for any potential causes that may affect fertility.

    The pros for using ultrasound for investigations

    • No radiation is involved,
    • Can assess specific regions,
    • Simple and cost effective
    • Results are rapid and accurate.
