prefix, root, and suffix. The field of medicine deals with Greek and Latin-derived terms and codes that seem esoteric for most people.

Both sides To expand a bit on the above answer, bilateral, in this case, refers to something that occurs in both the left and right sides of the body (such as paralysis of bot…h legs), or occurs in both of a pair of organs such as an infection in both lungs simultaneously. In general, bilateral means ocurring on both sides of a line of symmetry, whether real or imagined.
