  Lance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The medical lance, a small poking instrument usually used to create small prick in the skin for a blood sample, or to make a hole for draining fluid from a pustule or other blemish, is a metaphoric reference to the cavalry weapon, as is the slang usage "lance", in reference to the penis.
The best known usage of military lances was that of the full-gallop closed-ranks and usually wedge-shaped charge of a group of knights with underarm-couched lances, against lines of infantry, archery regiments, defensive embankments, and opposition cavalry.
The mounted lance saw a renaissance in the 18th century with the demise of the pike; heavily armoured cuirassiers used 2-3 m lances as their main weapons.
