Experts call the bulge in the front of the neck «Adam's apple». The cartilaginous element received its name from the biblical story of the Garden of Eden. A piece of the forbidden fruit stuck in Adam's throat is a confirmation of this event in the form of an Adam's apple.
All men have this bulge, unlike women, since the anatomy of the body of representatives of the fairer sex differs from that of men. In boys, unlike girls, the larynx develops differently. Testosterone increases, the vocal cords become longer, and the voice acquires a low sound, and a compact cartilaginous process under the skin protects the ligaments from external damage.
Girls also develop the larynx and ligaments, but not as intensely, since they voice is higher. Physiologically, this protrusion is as important a cartilaginous element as the ears or nose.
