Medical Terminology

What is Medical Terminology?

Different professions have different languages. For example, automobile mechanics use terms such as "master cylinder," "gasket," and "overhaul" to describe objects and situations they encounter while working on cars and trucks. Comparatively, medical professionals use terms to describe the objects and situations encountered in their fields.  For example, "herpes," "Adam's Apple ," and "pericarditis." The words, or terms, which make up the language of medicine are referred to as the terminology of the medical field, or medical terminology.
