A medical term must at least have one root word every time, But it does not need to have a prefix or suffix every time. some words can have all three a root word, prefix, and suffix. Medical terminology also has a combing form. which is when you add an "O" to the middle of the word and it becomes easier to pronounce. Common roots Nephro- Kidney Hepato-Liver Pulmo-Lung Cardio-Heart Cyto-Cell Common suffixes Malacia-abnormal softening Megaly-enlargement, large Oma-tumor, mass Pathy-disease Medical Terminology began when people wrote about "medicine" Hippocrates are Greek doctors known to be the father of medicine.
