Prefix comes at the beginning of a word. A suffix finishes the word.
-itis is definitely a suffix.
A word using the suffix -itis would be laryngitis.

well, it's a suffix. We've been studying stuff like this and our teacher said -itis means "swelling" or "inflammation" so something like the prefix "laryng" As in laryngitis

Pre- means before
Therefore, -itis is a suffix
Sinusitis, appendicitis, and dozens more....Source(s): 66
