Medical terminology is a core skill that all medical professionals must master. It helps them understand medical reports, make diagnoses, and prescribe medications and procedures.

Medical terminology, also known as medical vocabulary or medical language, is a collection of words and phrases used in the medical field to describe organs, systems, processes, diseases, drugs, and medical procedures.

Medical terminology consists of a number of elements, including:

  • Prefixes are parts of words placed at the beginning of the word to determine the meaning of the word. For example, prefix means "pre" or before, while prefix means "post" or after.
  • "-itis" For example, a suffix means inflammation, whereas a suffix means pain.
  • "cardi" For example, the word "cardi" means heart, while the word "hepato" means liver.
