Ultrasound scan of neck

8 Feb 2019 13:13

hello, I have been reffered for an ultrasound scan as my crp levels are raised and I have a lump in my neck along with other symptoms, however my ultrasound scan is with a consultant, I was wondering if I am reading too much into this but I was wondering why it is with a consultant and not just a sonographer? Also because it’s with a consultant will I get my results quicker. Thank you for reading

Try not to read too much into the tests and investigations that have been asked for.  It is always tempting to try and work out if there is any significance to these things, but at the end of the day ,it's the results of the tests that will tell you what is the matter. 

It isn't possible to second guess what the results might be and you are likely to worry more if you keep thinking it over and trying to work things out.  The best thing to do right now is to do something to take your mind off things, until you get the results back.

I hope that helps
