Thyroid cancer - A private ultrasound scan can save your life.

thyroid-neck-ultrasound

How a private ultrasound scan can diagnose thyroid cancer and save your life.

 

We saw lately in the news how a GP failed to refer a lady for a neck and thyroid ultrasound scan after she complained about a lump in the neck. Unfortunately, the patient later died from thyroid cancer. 

The patient visited the GP with a newly presented lump in her neck. After multiple visit in a period of 6 months, concerned that the lump was increasing in size, the GP decided to refer her for an ultrasound scan.

When eventually the patient had the neck and thyroid scan and consequent FNA the lump diagnosed as inoperative thyroid cancer and the patient subsequently died.

This is another sad story, heard too often. The same happened to 2 other patients that doctors missed blood clots and the patients died. You can read these stories here and here.

Testicular lumps or swelling of the scrotum are very common and affect all ages. The first thing that always comes to mind is what if the lump is dreaded cancer. A testicular ultrasound scan, a quick ultrasonic examination procedure using sound waves,  will be able to accurately tell you what the lump or swelling is. In our private ultrasound clinic in London, we offer same day affordable testicular scan appointments so you don't have to spend time waiting for your NHS appointments that can be as long as 6+ weeks.

 

The anatomy bit.

The testicles are the primary male reproductive organs housed in the scrotal sac and produce the sperm and testosterone.

Why have a Private Ultrasound Scan?

private-scan-london

Private ultrasound scan  (also known as medical ultrasound,  diagnostic sonography or ultrasonography) is a diagnostic imaging technique based on the application of ultrasound. It is used to create an image of internal body structures such as tendonsmuscles, joints, blood vessels, and internal organs. Its aim is often to find a source of a disease or to exclude pathology. The practice of examining pregnant women using ultrasound is called obstetric ultrasound, and was an early development and application of clinical ultrasonography.

There are multiple reasons why our clients choose to book a private ultrasound scan in our private ultrasound clinic in London.

Some of our clients have been referred for an ultrasound scan from their GP to help in diagnosing reasons for their health complaints. The hospital scan times, however, can be long.

The ultrasound waiting times in the NHS can be as long as six weeks and sometimes more, depending on your local hospital. So almost a month and a half that you have to wait to find out what’s wrong with you. This can have a detrimental effect on yourself as it will increase & anxiety.

When you eventually have received your ultrasound scan appointment, you have limited choice regarding the date and time of your scan. Yes, you can call in and reschedule your ultrasound appointment but, in most cases, you will go back to the end of the queue, unless there are any cancellations.
