Diagnose Groin Pain, Lump, Hernias
An ultrasound scan can diagnose a lump in the groin and common causes of groin pain. A hernia is a common cause of pain in the groin and it may also present as a lump. Other causes of groin pain can be from the hip joint and surrounding muscles and tendons.
An Ultrasound scan is excellent at diagnosing the above and often the first-line test for most patients.
If you have a lump or pain in the groin which you are worried about, have it diagnosed with our experienced consultant who specialises in this area. Skip the long NHS waits and get a scan booked this week.
If the lump requires any further assessment or biopsy, we will refer you to the appropriate specialist at no extra cost.
The doctor will use the ultrasound probe with a water-based jelly to examine the groin and assess the characteristics of any lump. The scan will produce images which the doctor will interpret and use to give a diagnosis. The procedure is not painful.
Due to COVID working practices, you can bring one person to accompany you in the scanning room.
There will also be a qualified chaperone present in the scan room along with the doctor.
Please dress appropriately to allow for easy access to the body part/joint being examined with ultrasound.
