I've been doing some tag clean-up (sorry for all the bumps) and came across a few that, in my opinion, should be synonyms. I don't have the privilege to make these changes, but perhaps someone who does, and thinks they should be synonyms, can. For many of these tags, there are few users who can suggest/vote on them so moderator intervention may be required.

    $\begingroup$ @Mesentery tumour is already a synonym of cancer, though tumor isn't. I would be in favour of all of these tags being synonyms of oncology. I'll add them to the list. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I really appreciate the tag efforts and especially the first two points make a lot of sense. $\endgroup$

I am not sure about other suggestions. Your suggestions are logical but the existing tag names seem to be more popular. If others agree for the change then we can rename those tags. At present it seems unnecessary to me.

    $\begingroup$ Thanks for your attention. I'll leave the other ones up there in case people want to discuss them, but they don't seem like crucial changes. $\endgroup$
