What is a "wound"?

A wound refers to an injury to the body, typically involving a break in the skin or underlying tissues. Wounds can result from various causes such as cuts, scrapes, or punctures. They often lead to pain, bleeding, and sometimes infection if not properly treated. The seriousness of a wound can vary widely, from minor scratches that heal quickly to deep cuts requiring medical attention and possibly stitches or other actions for proper healing.
