This is a block of text. Double-click this text to edit it.

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 can ne used to detect appearances in the breast tissue suggestive of  breast cancer.  Further tests such as FNA will be required to confirm the diagnosis.

Daniela - what can I say. A true gem of a human! She made me feel at ease and followed up with me via email and phonecall as she could tell that I was anxious. Furthermore, she recommended me a TCM practitioner who she had personally seen to help her with problems that she had experienced following an accident. I cannot recommend Sonoworld and even more, Daniela highly enough.

Transparent fees, a user-friendly booking system that allowed me to book a slot for the same day, and a speedy delivery of results that came the next morning. Daniela is incredibly knowledgeable - not only about sonography and structures but also clinical symptoms and potential treatments. She asked thoughtful and intelligent questions about my conditions, in a way that I found her even more professional and all-round than some gyns and urologists I had met. Highly recommended!

Dr Daniela Stan impressed me through her empathy, kindness, understanding and reassurance she has provided. I was very stressed before and even during my ultrasound, but everything turned out fine and she explained the findings in a simple, uncomplicated manner, addressing my health anxieties too. She also offered me a free follow up. I will surely return to Sonoworld and dr Stan for all my future scans.
