The thyroid gland is an endocrine gland, and it is located in front of the neck just above the collar bones. The thyroid and neck ultrasound scan produce pictures of the thyroid and the adjacent structures in the neck to diagnose suspected neck disease, for example, a lump in the thyroid or a thyroid that is not functioning properly. It is very common to find a lump on the neck as they are superficial and easily palpable. In most cases, these lumps are benign, but a neck ultrasound scan will help to confirm this.
Reasons for having a neck and thyroid ultrasound scan include:
- History of thyroid problems
- To check the appearance of a known thyroid nodule
- Determine the nature and origin of a lump arising from the neck
- Swelling of the salivary glands
- To evaluate the neck for any signs of lymphadenopathy, i.e. swollen lymph nodes
- Thyroid disease
- Abnormal swellings
- Difficulty in Swallowing

What should I expect during the thyroid and neck ultrasound scan?

We will place a small amount of gel on your neck and the transducer will slide up and down your neck to obtain the ultrasonic images
During and after the neck scan examination, our sonographer will explain the findings and an ultrasound scan report will be issued to take away with you.
