Question Neck Ultrasound

Anyone had a neck ultrasound before? I am going in for one this afternoon, and I am curious how this is done / how long the procedure takes.

Also what all does this show?

It's pretty simple. A gel is put on a piece of equipment that is moved around your neck. They look at the ultrasound machine at the same time and they are taking pictures while moving the piece around your neck. The whole procedure takes no more than 15 to 20 mintutes. I hope this makes sense to you. It isn't painful either. Good Luck.

It will show if you have an enlarged thyroid (goiter), any nodules or anything else that may be suspicious (a mass).
