I play an online scrabble-ish game with my friend. Recently I have scored big points with "ostomy" and "fistulas". I doubt I would have come up with these words if I didn't frequent this forum.

Wow, that's weird. Next time I play scrabble (probably not for a long time), I imagine I will be beating people with my knowledge about butts and butt problems.

Too funny. I could see lots of short words like biopsy, distal, ileum/ileo, renal, serum, or sepsis being used in a game of scrabble!

Oh some of those are good words to keep in mind! Biopsy would be worth decent points.
