comment Word for someone that doesn't like to pause while talking
I'm not sure whether to take this answer seriously, which determines whether it is an answer or a comment. Surely this behavior is seen outside of ADHD? What is the word that describes this particular symptom of ADHD?

comment Is there an umbrella word for cancer treatment?
I agree. Oncology is too broad; it covers much more than treatment and is more likely interpreted as cancer research than treatment.

comment What's the word for “running with your arms outstretched as though flying”?
Yes, this was the one I was trying to think of when I saw this question. I don't know if it is the right answer, but it does seem to fit in that it is an odd usage of a relatively uncommon word.

I think it might help if you explained how but is used in the phrase. That might be the OP's sticking point. But that he understood that construction, he might well grasp its meaning.
