Fun With Anatomy!

Why anatomy (and medicine in general) is hard to follow: because you need to know if you're talking to a neurosurgeon or ob/gyn in order to know what they mean by "cervical".

No, but seriously... Why does the head have so many terms in common with female reproductive organs? I fail to see the similarities.

  1. The word cervix is derived from the Latin root word "cervix" which means "neck." For this reason, the word cervical pertains to many areas where tissues narrow to a neck-like passage, and not only in your neck.
