Some have might wonder why they have Adam’s apple on their throat while others don’t. It is a natural occurrence, usually at puberty.
During puberty, adolescent encounters a number of physical changes. These include the protrusion of the adam’s apple. Adam’s apple is just an outward protrusion of the thyroid cartilage that surrounds the larynx (voice box).
Adam’s apple has not anything to deal with religion about Adam and Eve in the garden, of which some people think. Boys or men with Adam’s apple tend to have much deeper voices over time which can create a bump at the front of the throat, known as Adam’s apple.
Girls also undergo changes of voice in their puberty, but not as significant as those of a boy. The degree of laryngeal growth (voice box) of women isn’t also significant, that’s why most women don’t have Adam’s apple.
However, a larger larynx (voice box) which will lead to the protrusion of the adam’s apple may be caused by an increase in testosterone level. Such women are rare.
