Frequently Asked Questions
A thyroid ultrasound examines abnormalities in the thyroid gland, such as cysts, nodules, and tumours. If you or your doctor have detected a lump in your neck, you feel continuous pain and discomfort around your thyroid, or another test (such as a blood test) has flagged a thyroid problem, you may need a thyroid ultrasound.
Please do not delay or leave your health to chance – the sooner you get answers, the sooner you can take action.
Better yet, ultrasounds are quick, pain-free, non-invasive procedures, and at Harley Street Ultrasound, you get your results the same day as your appointment.
Located in your neck, the thyroid is a small gland that produces hormones.
The purpose of a thyroid scan is to investigate your thyroid, identify any abnormalities, and determine whether those abnormalities are cause for concern.
An ultrasound can diagnose growths – such as thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer –that may cause pain, discomfort, and other symptoms or impair your thyroid’s function.
No. Thyroid ultrasounds are painless, non-invasive procedures that require no downtime. You can return to work and other duties immediately following your appointment.
You will have to position your head in a backward tilt, using a pillow for support.
This may be a little uncomfortable but shouldn’t cause pain. However, if you experience pain at any stage during your thyroid scan, please let our neck specialist know.
We are dedicated to ensuring your experience is comfortable and stress-free.
A thyroid ultrasound is a critical diagnostic tool. Your images give your doctor the information they need to determine the following:
- Where growths are situated in the thyroid gland
- Whether the growth is solid or filled with fluid
- How many growths are present in your thyroid
- How much blood flow is directed to the growth
- Whether the growth has defined boundaries
Thyroid scans can also identify a goitre, which is the swelling of the gland.
A thyroid ultrasound allows your doctor to see inside of your body – that’s the primary benefit of a thyroid scan. Using images retrieved from an ultrasound, abnormalities are further investigated and diagnosed.
Ultrasounds ensure lumps like thyroid nodules and tumours are correctly identified, positioned, and determined to be fluid-filled or solid.
This information empowers you to put your worries to rest or seek the right treatment – this is particularly important if you are at risk of thyroid cancer.
That’s not the only benefit of thyroid ultrasounds – here are three more:
- Ultrasounds are safe, radiation-free, painless, and non-invasive
- Ultrasounds are quick and easy, and you can return to your regular day-to-day activities immediately after your appointment
- Harley Street Ultrasound gives you access to your results on the same day as your appointment, which means no waiting around for potentially life-altering answers
Thyroid cancer can result in the following symptoms:
- Neck swelling
- A lump in your neck, which may grow rapidly
- Pain to the front of your neck, which may stretch up to the ears
- Difficulty swallowing and breathing
- An unusually hoarse voice that will not go away
- A cough that is not caused by the flu or cold
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, contact your doctor or get answers fast by scheduling an appointment with Harley Street Ultrasound’s neck specialist.
However, keep in mind that all the above symptoms can be caused by conditions other than thyroid cancer – be sure to talk to a trusted medical professional as soon as possible to diagnose the underlying cause and start treatment if necessary.
No significant preparation is required for this test.
There is no particular type of care required after a Thyroid Ultrasound. You may resume your regular diet and daily activities unless your doctor advises you differently.
There are no confirmed adverse biological effects on patients or instrument operators caused by exposures to ultrasound at the intensity levels used in diagnostic ultrasound.
But depending on your particular results, the doctor may give you additional or alternative instructions after the procedure.
Many of our patients are concerned that if they come to us for an ultrasound, they won’t be able to go back to public health. That simply is not the case.
Our goal is to give you answers as quickly as possible and get you on the right treatment path fast – no strings attached.
When you come to us, you will be seen by a qualified specialist who can determine if your situation is serious or not that same day.
We don’t want you to wait weeks on end for an appointment because every minute counts when it comes to something as important as your health.
If your situation is serious, our specialist will write to your doctor on the NHS advising them that you need an urgent appointment.

Inga was fantastic, such a charming lady – she made us feel very welcome and her service was equivalent to what is found in a 5* hotel. Very happy with my visit, Dr and staff both knowledgable and professional – the way it should be.

I met Dr Ayman today after booking in for a ultrasound following some concerns which I had. He checked me throughly and explained to me each step what he was doing and his findings. Following the scan he advised me that I had nothing to worry about – I left the clinic feeling very reassured and stress free. Not only is he a great Dr, he is a fantastic man – he kept my 4 year old daughter entertained whilst he was doing his work. I would recommend Dr Ayman and his practice for sure!
