The reason for medical technical jargon...

... is clearly to make conditions sound more dignified and interesting than they really are. In the case at hand, "extracting a Cerumen Impaction" sounds ever so much better than, "We removed a plug of earwax the size of a Tootsie Roll from each ear". But at least I can hear again. (And suddenly realize that my hearing's only been around 70% for months now...)
