patient with in his groin near the elastic band of his jockey shorts. This oozes on occasion. Doc dictates: on examination he appears to have a s/l "much-friable" mass. question: that doesn't make sense to me, so I'm thinking is he saying multi-friable?? is there anything else that wold fit the bill? thank you.

** • Listen for "large friable mass." Multi-friable doesn't fly. (Nor does much friable.) - nm

what seborrheic keratosis can look like.....and I could certainly see friable.....and much possibilities within the range of the condition.

word 'much' and didn't think it made sense. Based on the definition, it does make medical sense (though I don't personally like the way he phrases it). On the other hand, I realize we are currently in the world of 'verbatim' so I try to lean toward that side if the medical meaning is not compromised. As regards 'mostly' too is a legitimate descriptor ..... it's just I would need to hear the clip before making a recommendation. Sorry I can't be more helpful.
