prognosis

  

Definition

Assessment or prediction (in the sense of a best educated guess) of the future course of the development, outcome, or progress of a condition or phenomenon, based on a careful diagnosis of the case. It is an attempt to anticipate probable consequences, and the price of their effects in terms of money, disruption, discomfort, pain, etc. Search for an effective remedy is futile without an effective prognosis.
