Yes, many prefixes used in medicine are also used by language learners, but the common prefixes in medicine are few
compared to other fields.
Learning prefixes takes time and effort -- especially in the medical
field -- seeing there are so many of them. What's more, they are so specialized... and so foreign
(for the most part) that it's like learning another language altogether.
