There are so many medical terms relating to all kinds of treatments and I've often wondered if I had the correct pronounciation. I came across a site that does just that. All you have to do is look up the word and then slide your mouse over it. I found out I was pronouncing "Squamous" all wrong!
Just go here:

The only bummer is that it doesn't work on my iPhone.

"There's an app for that" smile I found out that there is an app for the iPhone (maybe for other smart phones, too?) from the very same web site but it costs $3.99. It's called "Howjsay Pronunciation" and has good reviews in case anyone is interested.

the best way to pronounce squamous, or any other cancer sight, is either benign or not mine
