    Okay, need a little help here.

    'Hamartoma' is one of those words that I've only read in print, and never heard spoken. (Like 'facade' - it was a shock to learn its true pronunciation back in school..!)

    How are you supposed to say the word 'hamartoma', and how is it different from the pronunciation for hematoma?

    Thanks in advance..

    Don't know. Will probably depend on the accent, mate.
