When studying and using medical terminology it is important to understand the basic structure of medical terms and their meanings. In medicine all parts of a medical term are essential to the meaning of that term and each part of that term has its own meaning. Take the term appendicitis for example, it means inflammation, appendic is the body part (the appendix) so, appendicitis is the medical term used for inflammation of the appendix.

Also when learning about language and medical terminology, it is worthwhile remembering that words will contain patterns and the more you read and become familiar with them, the more you will readily and easily understand them. It is also important to note that not every medical term follows the exact same pattern. Some words have very clear derivatives whereas others are not so distinct in where they have evolved from. Do not expect to see that exact same patterns in all words.
