Tucson (pronounced /tuːˈsɒn, tuːˈsɔːn/) is a term that is primarily known as the name of a city in the U.S. state of Arizona. However, in the context of medical terminology, it does not have a specific meaning.


The name Tucson originates from the O'odham language, specifically the phrase Cuk Ṣon, which translates to "(at the) base of the black [hill]". This refers to the basalt-covered hills in the area now known as "A" Mountain.
