Confidential Tests to Eliminate all Doubt
Why are scrotal ultrasounds done?
Also known as testicular ultrasound, testicular sonogram, scrotal ultrasounds are done to:
Find an undescended testicle.
Check for fluid in the scrotum (hydrocele), fluid in the epididymis (spermatocele), blood in the scrotum (hematocele), distended scrotal vessels (varicocele) or pus in the scrotum (pyocele).
Guide a biopsy needle for a testicular biopsy. This may be done when testing for infertility.
Find or check for an infection or swelling of the testicles or epididymis.
Check a mass or pain in the testicles.
