Why book a Breast Ultrasound Scan?

  • Symptom Investigation: If someone is experiencing symptoms such as a palpable lump, pain, nipple discharge, or changes in the breast skin or nipple appearance, a breast ultrasound can help determine the cause.
  • Characterising Lumps: Ultrasound can help distinguish between solid tumours and fluid-filled cysts. This is crucial for determining whether a lump is likely benign or potentially malignant.
  • Additional Imaging: For women with dense breast tissue, mammograms can sometimes be less effective because dense tissue can mask abnormalities. Ultrasound can provide additional information that is not visible on mammograms.
  • Younger Women’s Screening: Because younger women typically have denser breast tissue, ultrasound may be used as a more effective screening tool compared to mammography alone.
  • Monitoring: For women with known benign cysts, ultrasounds may be used periodically to monitor any changes in the size or appearance of these cysts.
  • High-Risk Patients: Women at high risk for breast cancer due to genetic factors or family history may undergo more frequent breast ultrasounds for their piece of mind or as advised by their GP.

A breast ultrasound scan is a valuable diagnostic tool often used for various purposes related to breast health. It is a non-invasive, safe, and effective method that uses sound waves to create images of the breast tissue. It does not involve radiation, making it a preferred option for frequent examinations, particularly in younger women or during pregnancy.

In Males & Females
Breast ultrasound is a diagnostic tool used to examine breast tissue in both males and females. However, the reasons and frequency may differ due to the variations in breast tissue and common conditions in each gender. Overall, breast ultrasound serves as a critical tool in the evaluation and management of breast health in both males and females, tailored to the specific anatomical and risk profiles of each gender.
