Change text on fill-in-the-blank for New quizzes

I teach medical terminology and like to use fill in the blank questions for students to define words.  The problem is that there is just a blank.  I'd like them to be able to replace the writing in the blank with the correct definition.  Currently I put what I want them to replace in parentheses. Here is an example:

"Most lesions are __________(destructive), and approximately 26% of patients have ____________ (caused by disease) fractures of the affected area upon diagnosis"

It would really be nice if the blank could have the stuff currently in parentheses.  It would be neater.
