Question

Which of the following endocrine gland is found only in males?


  1. Testes

  2. Thymus

  3. Pancreas

  4. Thyroid


Solution

The correct option is A

Testes


The endocrine gland that is unique to males is known as testes. Testes are part of the endocrine system which produces a hormone known as testosterone. Secretion of this hormone brings about changes in males such as the growth of facial hair and body hair. The other three glands are common to both male and female. The thymus produces white blood cells that fight infection. The thyroid glands secrete thyroid hormone, which regulates the metabolism levels in our body. The pancreas secretes insulin which regulates the sugar level in our blood.
