Frequently Asked Questions
Our health is our most valuable asset, so we shouldn’t leave anything to chance when it comes to protecting it. Luckily, modern medicine has given us the tools and treatments needed to overcome some diseases and conditions – but there’s a catch.
Often, the sooner an ailment is diagnosed and treated, the more likely the patient is to make a full recovery. Early detection truly is vital.
A female health check can give you peace of mind – whether you are experiencing symptoms or not. Our specialists can help you uncover potential risks so that you can take meaningful strides toward treatment.
Any woman can get a female health check, and it’s something we encourage. Ultrasound is a safe, non-invasive, radiation-free imaging technology that enables your trusted healthcare professionals to see inside your body and identify abnormalities.
Our female health assessment includes a breast, abdomen, and pelvic ultrasound, all of which are performed by experienced, compassionate specialists. Your breast assessment also includes an armpit examination.
Together, these scans aim to pick up on abnormalities, diseases, and conditions before they progress into something more severe. We check for the following:
- Signs of inflammation
- Lumps, masses, and tumours
- Symptoms of cancer
- The health of the reproductive organs
- Abnormalities in the breasts and armpits, including issues with breast implants
- And more
If you have any questions about our female health check, please don’t hesitate to contact our team. We’d be more than happy to provide tailored guidance and ease any concerns.
No. You do not need a referral from your healthcare professional to undergo a female health assessment at Harley Street Ultrasound.
We want you to feel empowered and in control of your health and wellbeing. When you come to us for a female health check, your one-on-one doctor consultation is where you can ask questions and get the answers you deserve.
Better yet, high-resolution digital images and results from your ultrasounds are available on the same day as your appointment.
An ultrasound is a safe, painless, radiation-free form of imaging technology that uses sound waves to look at the inside structures of your body.
A breast ultrasound enables your healthcare provider to identify and diagnose breast abnormalities and problems, such as lumps and breast implant ruptures.
Ultrasound is not typically used alone to scan for and detect breast cancer in patients over 40. However, if you are under 40, your doctor may request a breast cancer ultrasound.
While mammography is the only breast cancer screening tool shown to actively minimise deaths caused by breast cancer, it cannot find all breast cancers in all people.
Sometimes, abnormalities and lesions are not detectable nor easy to interpret using mammograms. In these cases, ultrasound is used as a supplementary imagining technology.
We understand that waiting for your health check results can be nerve-wracking, and that’s why we guarantee same-day results.
Your results include a full report and access to high-res digital images. From there, you can schedule a follow-up appointment with your doctor if required.
Yes. You can schedule a female health check with our specialists if you don’t have symptoms.
Health concerns can weigh on your mind. Whether you have a health issue that runs in the family or have decided to take a proactive approach to your healthcare, we can help.
At Harley Street Ultrasound, there’s no such thing as a silly question. Health is paramount, and we are ready to do what it takes to put your mind at ease and protect your vitality at every stage of life.
No. Our female health assessment uses ultrasound to look inside your body for abnormalities and areas of concern, but that’s no reason to put off your health check until something feels wrong.
Ultrasound doesn’t use radiation. Instead, it captures images using high-frequency sound waves. The ultrasound wand, called a transducer, is placed outside of your body – the procedure is non-invasive from start to finish.
If you are undergoing an abdomen ultrasound, we suggest fasting for four hours before your appointment. This ensures our specialists can see your gallbladder.
If you are undergoing a pelvic ultrasound as a part of your private health assessment, please drink four glasses of water 45 to 60 minutes before your examination. This enables our specialists to assess the pelvic organs properly.
Otherwise, there is very little preparation required. You may like to remove your jewellery and wear a top that is quick and easy to take on and off – during your breast ultrasound, you will be asked to undress from the waist up.
If our specialists detect an abnormality during your examination, they will advise you on the next steps. Do not panic – the good news is you have caught the abnormality and can move forward with diagnosis and potential treatment.
If our specialists detect something serious, they will write urgently to your doctor to request a prompt appointment.
If you have a transabdominal pelvic ultrasound, you must drink 4 to 6 glasses of water about an hour before the test. This will fill your bladder and make for a clearer picture.
If you are having both transabdominal and transvaginal pelvic ultrasounds done, you’ll start with a full bladder. You will be asked to empty it before the transvaginal ultrasound.
No other preparation is required.
You will be taken care of by ultrasound specialists during your female health assessment. It’s only natural to feel a little anxious, but remember that we are here to make your experience positive.
If, at any time, there is something our staff can do to make you more comfortable, please do not hesitate to ask.
Most ultrasounds begin by clearing the examination area of clothes, jewellery, and any other accessories. You will then be asked to lie down on our examination table.
Then, a cool gel will be applied to the target area – your skin’s warmth will soon heat the cold gel. The gel is water-based and, therefore, easy to remove from skin and clothing.
The specialist will then move a small wand over the area to capture images. The wand, called a transducer, sends sound waves into your body – the process is completely painless.
In most cases, ultrasounds take less than 30 minutes. You will receive a high-resolution digital copy of your images the same day as your exam.
There is no particular type of care required after a female health check 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.
