Lump Ultrasounds

What can I expect?

You will need to expose the area of the lump. This could mean lifting/lowering the item of clothing covering the lump. If the lump is in an area that requires the removal of clothing, the sonographer will provide you with a disposable sheet to cover up with.

This ultrasound may last approximately 5-20 minutes depending on the location of the lump.


There is no preparation required for a lump ultrasound.

Wear comfy clothes to your appointment.

Please arrive 10 minutes early with your Alberta Healthcare card (or other provincial healthcare card) and your requisition if you were given a copy.
