Frequently Asked Questions

Can ultrasound be used to detect cancer?

Yes, ultrasound is one of the diagnostic tools used to detect and monitor various forms of cancer in people. It can provide images of soft tissue structures within the body, which is helpful in evaluating organs where cancer might be present. If a suspicious lesion or mass is found, further tests may be recommended, such as a biopsy or a more specialized scan, to determine the nature of the abnormality. It is important to note that while an ultrasound can be suggestive of cancer, it cannot diagnose cancer definitively; a tissue diagnosis is necessary for that.

Can ultrasound be used to detect breast cancer?

Yes, ultrasound is used to detect appearances in the breast tissue suggestive of  breast cancer.  Further tests such as FNA will be required to confirm the diagnosis.

Do I need a doctor's referral to get a private ultrasound in London?

No, a doctor's referral is not necessary to book a private scan with Sonoworld. We provide direct access to private ultrasound services for those who wish to have immediate and flexible appointments.

Is ultrasound imaging safe?

Yes, ultrasound is a non-invasive, safe, and painless procedure. It uses high frequency sound waves to create images of the inside of the body and does not involve radiation.

Can I bring someone with me to the appointment?

We understand that having a scan can be a sensitive experience, so you are welcome to bring someone with you for support. However, due to the nature of some scans, they may be asked to wait in the reception area during the actual procedure.

What is a womb ultrasound and why might I need one?

A womb ultrasound, also known as a pelvic scan, is used to examine the female reproductive organs, including the uterus and ovaries. It can be recommended if you're experiencing symptoms such as abnormal bleeding or pain, or if the doctor wants to investigate conditions like fibroids or polycystic ovary syndrome.

What treatment options do you offer if my ultrasound reveals problems?

While we don't provide treatment or surgery, our detailed ultrasound reports can assist your doctor or surgeon in determining the best course of action, whether it involves medication, further testing, or surgical procedures.

Are there any risks associated with ultrasound testing?

Ultrasound is a safe and non-invasive procedure with no known risks or complications. It does not use ionizing radiation and can be used to diagnose and monitor various conditions with minimal discomfort.

Should I stop my medications before an ultrasound?

In most cases, you should continue taking your medications as prescribed. However, some tests may require you to adjust your medication intake. Always consult with your doctor or our sonographers if you're unsure.
