Adam's Apple


Inside the trachea where the larynx and vochal cords are, there is something called thyroid cartilage, which is padding for the larynx.

This padding sticks out in your throat area as a lump you can see and feel.
The lump is nicknamed the Adam's apple, also called the laryngeal prominence.

The Adam's apple is bigger in boys than in girls.
