Free Medical Terminology Practice Test: Skin Lesions

Most people have had at least one skin problem at some point and may be familiar with a few of the medical terms related to skin lesions, but many of these terms may be challenging to those who are trying to learn them.

A few terms look and sound very similar, like fistula and fissure. Some may overlap, such as vesicle and bulla. Many terms may be vaguely familiar, but knowing the specific definitions, lay terms, and perhaps a few examples may help you to remember these more common skin lesions.
