traditional scientific words

this is specially for medical people that are just about to practice the art of medicine soon. hopefully, this is helpful in some ways.

here are some local terms that are used by patients in order to express themselves.

  • melarat - RADIATE (especially for pain)
  • ketuat - SKIN TAG / PAPILLOMA
  • ketumbit - STYE (inflammation of the sebaceous gland of the eyelid)
  • pedih ulu hati - GASTRIC REGURGITATION
  • tahi pucat - STEATORRHEA
  • nyawa - BREATHING
  • teropong - ENDOSCOPE / COLONOSCOPE
  • penat - SHORTNESS OF BREATH

kalau ada salah, sorry. kalau ada nak tambah, don't shy shy cat, nanti get lost the way.

  • kematu - CORN (bukan yg makan tu, tp kat tapak kaki)
