Ultrasound Scan Of The Testis For Suspected Testis Cancer
A testicular ultrasound is the primary imaging method used to observe and diagnose abnormalities in the testicles and the surrounding tissues in the scrotum. An ultrasound is a safe, painless, and non-invasive procedure.
A radiologist can interpret the echoes to distinguish between benign conditions like a collection of fluid around your testicle and a solid mass that could be a malignant tumor.

Verify whether a lump in your scrotum or testicles is solid, which indicates a tumor, or filled with fluid, which indicates a cyst
Identify sources of pain or swelling in your testicles
Detect for and evaluate varicoceles, which are varicose spermatic vie
