Re: Testicular Ultrasound
hi, i do testicular ultrasounds, so here's the deal. you can request a male tech if the place you have it done has one.it would be a little more comfortable for you as there is a risk of getting an erection, especially if it is done by a young female tech. the exam consists you laying on a table, naked from the waist down and somewhat covered by a gown or towel. some warm gel will be applied to your scrotum and the scan is done using a small instument that looks like an electric razor. the probe, as it's called, emits sound waves that produce the images that are then read by a radiologist for diagnostic answers to you problems.
these exams are very accurate in demonstating, testicular cysts, epididymitis(infection), and of course testicular cancers. i am very glad you are having this done because most young men do not do self-exams or tell someone when something down there doesn't feel right....until it's TOO LATE!! i hope everything goes well for you. let me know if you have more questions.
