Testicular lump or swelling? Could it be cancer? A quick ultrasound scan will give you the answer.

testes-ultrasound-scan

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.

 

The anatomy bit.

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

You also have, what is called the epididymitis in the scrotal sac. Epididymitis is full of interrelated tubules where the sperm matures.

Why have a Private Ultrasound Scan?

private-scan-london

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.

Now contrast this with our ultrasound clinic in London where not only you can book the same day ultrasound scan appointment but you can choose the time and date to suit you. Your daily stress is further minimised by being able to book an evening and weekend appointment, so there is no need to get stressed about being able to have a day off for your ultrasound scan.

NHS refused an ultrasound scan to a pensioner who died three days later

nhs-refused-ultrasound-scan

 

'WE WERE POWERLESS'  Pensioner, 79, died three days after being refused an ultrasound scan ‘that could have saved her life’

 

It was with great sadness that I read the article with the above title in yesterday's 'The Sun' newspaper. 

According to the article, Mrs. Sledmere attended her local hospital in London with abdominal pain and doctor diagnosed here with either gallstones or gastritis.

Unfortunately, she did not receive an ultrasound scan to confirm or exclude gallstones as they did not have any ultrasound scan appointments available at the time and they sent her home where she died three days later from perforated gallbladder.

Ultrasound Scan - How, What, Why- All your questions answered

Ultrasound Scan - How, What, Why- All your questions answered What is an ultrasound scan?

An ultrasound scan is a medical diagnostic imaging technique that utilises sound waves to obtain internal images of the body.

A probe, called transducer, rests on the skin. This probe sends soundwaves inside the body. Some of the sound waves bounce back to the prop and a powerful computer creates the black and white ultrasound image. The returning sound are called echoes.

Ultrasound scans are widely being used today as the first line of diagnostic imaging because they are relatively cheap, more available than CT and MRI and have no side effects.

 

Why should you have an ultrasound scan?

The reasons you might be having an ultrasound scan vary but, in most cases, you have been to your GP with some discomfort and maybe pain and your GP wants to see what is happening inside you.

The Stronger I feel, The weaker I am: why?

In this article let’s talk about a little secret that nobody tells you when you go to the gym. In our modern physical activity, extreme high intensity workouts like Crossfit, Bootcamp, Zumba, and any bodypump exercises  are getting popularity among women and man all across the world. While you are feeling stronger and fit, on the other side the condition and balance of the pelvic floor may be weaker causing many serious symptomatic and pathologic problem . One of the youtube videos that has had an impact on me is titled,, Crossfit, do you pee during exercises?’’

I have always asked myself why some of the physical activities which I feel, make me stronger on the outside make me, is the same time, so much weaker inside?

And this is the truth that we are ignoring day by day:

HIGH IMPACT EXERCISES ARE DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE TOVERLOAD ON INTRA-ABDOMINAL PRESSURE

Pelvic floor muscles (Levator ani muscle) have to contain this systematic increase of pressure in order to avoid  that the  visceral-pelvic-organs collapse down . The management of intra-abdominal pressure can fail if several risk factors coexist at the same time (frequency, load, intensity, impact of training). The scientific literature found out that more than 80% of female athletes suffer from stress urinary incontinence, decrease in vaginal pressure compared to no-athletes and organs prolapse. For Stress Urinary incontinence means that there is an involuntary dissipation when we sneeze, cough, jump, run, or we do any physical effort in general.
