Ultrasound Testes scan

The testicular ultrasound uses sound waves to create images of the scrotal contents – testes, epididymis, arteries and veins supplying blood to the testes. It looks for any evidence of:

  • an infection in your testicle
  • a benign cyst
  • a testicular torsion, which is a twisted spermatic cord restricting blood flow to your testicle
  • a testicular tumour
  • a hydrocele, which is a benign collection of fluid around your testicle
  • a spermatocele, which is a fluid filled cyst on the ducts of your testicles
  • a variocele, which is an enlarged vein in the spermatic cord of your testicle
