If your arm hurts, it's easy to say to your doctor, "My arm hurts." But suppose you injured that area between your nose and your eyebrows. Would you know enough to tell your doctor that you injured your glabella?

Naturally, all parts of the body have names, but we don't know them because we don't have to. Below are seven you may not have known.

If your arm hurts, it's easy to say to your doctor... (show quote)


Interesting, but by the time I got though the list, I could not remember any of the six above it. I don't think I'll be impressing any doctor on my next visit to the clinic!

I don't know if any of my physician colleagues could tell me what an acnestis is..... The rest are commonly used (in descriptions of problems). Of course, in medical school, when the term "anatomical snuff box" was first introduced, almost everyone said: "what is a snuff box? - and for that matter, what is snuff"?
Jerry, usually patients just point to the area of their concern. Or they say: "you know, doc, that little depression above my lip and below my nose". Of course, these days, they also show me photos on their cell phones, like the patient who recently pulled out his cell phone and said: "look how bad my hemorrhoids are"! Yep - they were BAD!

Not so far. I want to keep that junk to remind me of better days.

I can imagine him asking someone to take that picture.

That told joke -

"Doctor, my arm hurts when I move it like this."

"Then don't move it like that."

Measuring spaghetti seems to be a scene waiting for a movie.
