Every new year brings new challenges and changes to your routines of life. Why not make a change that betters your health this year?
Self-care can include a wide range of things, for example, sleep, exercise, better nourishment, finding more relaxation techniques, or finding ways to take better care of yourselves and your health in general.
At Ultrasound Care, we are passionate about encouraging self-checks at home. As a diagnostic ultrasound clinic, we are on hand to help with any private scans you may need following self-checks, but it is vital to regularly check yourself for any bodily changes.
Importance of Self-Checks This Year
Once a month, it is important to take a few minutes to perform self-checks regarding your health. For men it may include a check of their scrotal region for any pain, swelling or lumps. Self-checks are a vital part of early diagnosis in some diseases and conditions. The earlier conditions are detected, the more treatments can be accessed and approved for you.
If you have been experiencing any kind of pain, swelling or tenderness anywhere, it is important to get yourself checked by a professional.
What To Do Next...
When performing self-checks at home, if you notice any lumps, or new areas of tenderness, contact your GP to discuss. Alternatively, you can book a scan with Ultrasound Care; our team can help guide you towards the correct scan.
Ultrasound scans are often needed for taking a deeper look into abdominal pains, pelvic organs, and vascular systems. With the images produced during the ultrasound, your internal health can be checked and assessed for any conditions or diseases that may be present.
After each appointment, an extensive report is compiled and sent through to your GP for further discussions regarding diagnosis or treatment.
