WHAT DOES PATHOLOGY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

pathology

Pathology

Pathology (from the Ancient Greek roots of pathos (πάθος), meaning "experience" or "suffering", and -logia (-λογία), "an account of") is a significant component of the causal study of disease and a major field in modern medical practice and diagnosis. The term pathology itself may be used broadly to refer to the study of disease in general, incorporating a wide range of bioscience research fields and medical practices, or more narrowly to describe work within the contemporary medical field of "general pathology," which includes a number of distinct but inter-related medical specialties which diagnose disease mostly through the analysis of tissue, cell, and body fluid samples. Used as a common noun, "a pathology" (plural - "pathologies" or "pathoses") can also refer to the predicted or actual progression of particular diseases (as in the statement "the many different forms of cancer have diverse pathologies") and the prefix "path-" is sometimes used to indicate a state of disease in cases of both physical ailment (as in cardiomyopathy) and psychological conditions (such as psychopathy). A physician practicing pathology is called a pathologist.

Definition of pathology in the English dictionary

The first definition of pathology in the dictionary is the branch of medicine concerned with the cause, origin, and nature of disease, including the changes occurring as a result of disease. Other definition of pathology is the manifestations of disease, esp changes occurring in tissues or organs. Pathology is also any variant or deviant condition from normal.

When I was 10 years old, a cousin of mine took me on a tour of his medical school.
