If you’ve noticed that a new lump has appeared on your neck, an ultrasound scan can quickly investigate the problem and work towards a diagnosis. This method is ideal because it’s usually painless and non-invasive. It could be your salivary glands or thyroid nodules; imaging tests will look at the soft tissues in your neck to determine that might be the cause.

What is the purpose of a neck ultrasound?

Having an ultrasound of a neck lump or unusual mass can help to put your mind to rest. Images of the affected area of the neck can be analysed without the need for diagnostic surgery or a biopsy. Ultrasound scans provide images of the soft tissue that cannot be obtained using a standard x-ray. We can look at your neck and any nodules felt in previous examinations using a small probe; this transducer sends images back to the computer that we can monitor.

In most cases, what we find is treatable; tumours may be found during this treatment, but you will be referred back to your GP should this happen.
