The private testicular ultrasound will examine the testes and scrotum. The scrotum or testicular sack contains the testes and the epididymi. It is very common for pain or lumps to developed within the scrotal sac. In most cases these lumps are benign and ultrasound is being used to confirm what the lump is. Other possible abnormalities within the scrotal sac are an absent or undescended testicle, inflammation, testicular torsion (twisted testis), fluid collection, enlarged blood vessels (varicoceles) or a mass (lump or a tumour), infertility. Our clients choose our private ultrasound clinic for their scan, as in most cases after they have seen their GP who recommended an NHS scan, they don’t want to wait up to 6+ weeks to be given an inflexible appointment.
The purpose of this testicular ultrasound is the evaluation of:
- Scrotal sac
Reasons for having a testicular ultrasound scan:
- Testicular lump
- Testicular pain or ache

It is recommended to regularly check the testis for any lumps or for anything that doesn't feel right.
The testis is the ovoid structure within the scrotal sack. Within the scrotum, there is also the head, tail and body of the epididymis.
The epididymis is full of small tubules where the sperm matures. These tubules sometimes get blocked and expand resulting on what is called epididymal cyst.
Epididymal cysts are harmless and they are very common.
Sometimes the tubules leak and sperm escape within the scrotal sac resulting sometimes in discomfort.
Hydrocoele is fluid around the testis.
Infections are also common in the testis resulting in an inflamed epididymis that can also feel like a lump.
It is also possible for cancer to be developed inside the testis and it is therefore very important if you find any lumps to have them checked as soon as possible with ultrasound.
