medical word of the day: shotty

I know it has been awhile. I have been feverishly and frantically studying at every spare moment for my test this coming Tuesday. But here is your interesting word for today.

shotty:like shot; resembling the pellets used in shotgun cartridges.

This adjective is not disturbing in itself. However, it is disturbing when used to describe someone's lymph nodes.
