Diagnosis Prognosis Prognostication

The doctor gives you a diagnosis (what is wrong with you), and then discusses your prognosis (what course the disease will take; what your chances of recovery are). Prognostication (a forecast or prophecy) connotes mysticism, so it’s not entirely appropriate as a medical term. It’s also a highfalutin word for a weather forecast.
