This clinic is run by Consultant Urologist Mr Roland Donat and Consultant Radiologist Dr Jones. Our clinic offers you diagnosis of testicular lumps and abnormalities. Prompt diagnosis means the best possible approach to treatment can be identified, planned and actioned quickly, should it be required.
During your appointment you will see the consultant urologist who will take a full medical history and carry out a physicaly exam. If it is necessary for you to see a specialist radiologist, this will be arranged immediately. Should further diagnostic assessment, blood or urine tests be required, our on-site diagnostic facilities and pathology laboratory mean we can refer you and return your results quickly.
During your appointment with the Consultant Radiologist you will undergo an ultrasound scan; this will take about ten minutes. The radiologist will interpret your scan and give you your results, which can then be discussed with your urologist. Your urologist may re-examine you if he thinks it necessary, deliver an assessment of the findings from your scan and provide a diagnosis. He will also detail steps of treatments to be undertaken, if required.
