Pelvic Ultrasound scan

Pelvic Tumours

Pelvic tumors, encompassing a range of benign and malignant growths in the pelvic region, can affect various organs, including the reproductive system, bladder, rectum, and the pelvic bones. These tumors may arise from different tissues and have varying implications on health, symptoms, and treatment options. At London Private Ultrasound, we are equipped with advanced diagnostic tools and a multidisciplinary team to evaluate, diagnose, and manage pelvic tumors, ensuring comprehensive care for our patients.

Types of Pelvic Tumors

Pelvic tumors can be broadly categorized into benign (non-cancerous) and malignant (cancerous) types. Common benign pelvic tumors include uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts, which typically affect women of reproductive age. Malignant pelvic tumors may involve cancers of the ovary, uterus (endometrial cancer), cervix, prostate, bladder, or rectum.

Symptoms of Pelvic Tumors

The symptoms of pelvic tumors vary widely based on the type, size, and location of the tumor. Some individuals may not experience any symptoms, especially in the early stages, while others may have signs such as:

  • Pelvic pain or pressure
  • Abnormal bleeding or discharge (in gynecological tumors)
  • Changes in bladder or bowel habits
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Swelling or a palpable mass in the pelvic area
  • Fatigue

Diagnostic Approach

Accurate diagnosis of pelvic tumors is critical for effective treatment planning. At London Private Ultrasound, our diagnostic approach includes:

  • Ultrasound Scans: Both transabdominal and transvaginal ultrasound scans are non-invasive procedures that provide detailed images of the pelvic organs, helping to identify tumors and assess their characteristics.
  • Blood Tests: Certain blood tests can detect markers that are associated with specific types of cancer, aiding in the diagnosis.
  • MRI and CT Scans: These imaging tests offer comprehensive views of the pelvic region, providing crucial information on the tumor’s size, extent, and potential spread to adjacent structures or organs.
  • Biopsy: In some cases, a biopsy may be necessary to obtain a tissue sample for microscopic examination, confirming whether a tumor is benign or malignant.

Our clinic is committed to providing personalized care to patients with pelvic tumors, from initial diagnosis to treatment planning. We collaborate closely with a team of specialists, including gynecologists, oncologists, urologists, and surgeons, to ensure that each patient receives the most effective treatment tailored to their specific condition.

Treatment options for pelvic tumors vary depending on the type and stage of the tumor, as well as the patient’s overall health and treatment preferences. They may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, or a combination of these treatments.
