  • Areolar glands
    Areolar glands or Glands of Montgomery are sebaceous glands in the areola surrounding the nipple.
  • Gland
    A gland is an organ in an animal's body that synthesizes substances (such as hormones) for release into the bloodstream (endocrine gland) or into cavities inside the body or its outer surface (exocrine gland).
  • Mammary gland
    A mammary gland is an exocrine gland in mammals that produces milk to feed young offspring.
  • Spleen
    The spleen (from Greek σπλήν—splḗn) is an organ found in virtually all vertebrates.
  • Thyroid
    The thyroid gland, or simply the thyroid /ˈθaɪrɔɪd/, is an endocrine gland in the throat, and consists of two connected lobes.
  • Nipple
    (This article is about the anatomical structure. For other uses, see Nipple (disambiguation).) In its most general form, a nipple is a structure from which a fluid emanates.
  • Pineal gland
    The pineal gland, also known as the pineal body, conarium or epiphysis cerebri, is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain.
  • Sweat gland
    Sweat glands, also known as sudoriferous or sudoriparous glands, from Latin sudor, meaning "sweat", are small tubular structures of the skin that produce sweat.
  • Sebaceous gland
    Sebaceous glands are microscopic exocrine glands in the skin that secrete an oily or waxy matter, called sebum, to lubricate and waterproof the skin and hair of mammals.
  • Bartholin's gland
    The Bartholin's glands (also called Bartholin glands or greater vestibular glands) are two pea sized compound racemose glands located slightly posterior and to the left and right of the opening of the vagina.
  • Bulbourethral gland
    A bulbourethral gland, also called a Cowper gland for English anatomist William Cowper, is one of two small exocrine glands in the reproductive system of many male mammals (of all domesticated animals, they are only absent in the dog).
  • Gonad
    A gonad or sex gland or reproductive gland is an endocrine gland that produces the gametes (sex cells) of an organism.
  • Pituitary gland
    In vertebrate anatomy, the pituitary gland, or hypophysis, is an endocrine gland about the size of a pea and weighing 0.
  • Skene's gland
    In female human anatomy, Skene's glands or the Skene glands (/skiːn/; US dict: skēn; also known as the lesser vestibular glands, periurethral glands, paraurethral glands, or homologous female prostate) are glands located on the anterior wall of the vagina, around the lower end of the urethra.
  • Scent gland
    Scent glands are exocrine glands found in most mammals.
  • Interlobar duct
    A interlobar duct is a gland duct which connects more than one anatomic lobe.
  • Interlobular duct
    An Interlobular duct is a gland duct which connects more than one lobule.
  • Serous gland
    Serous glands contain serous acini, a grouping of serous cells that secrete serous fluid, isotonic with blood plasma, that contains enzymes such as alpha-amylase.
  • Alveolar gland
    If glands are categorized by shape, alveolar glands contrast with tubular glands.
  • Moll's gland
    Glands of Moll, also known as ciliary glands, are modified apocrine sweat glands that are found on the margin of the eyelid.
  • Mucous gland
    Mucous gland, also known as muciparous glands, are found in several different parts of the body, and they typically stain lighter than serous glands during standard histological preparation.
  • Nasal glands
    The nasal glands are the seromucous glands in the respiratory region of the nasal mucous membrane.
  • Preputial gland
    Preputial glands are exocrine glands that are located in the folds of skin front of the genitals of some mammals (including mice, gray wolves and even-toed ungulates) and produce pheromones.
  • Serous demilune
    A serous demilune or Crescents of Gianuzzi is a cap in the shape of a half-moon (hence the name "demilune") on some salivary glands.
  • Lactation
    Lactation describes the secretion of milk from the mammary glands and the period of time that a mother lactates to feed her young.
  • Zuckerkandl's tubercle (thyroid gland)
    Zuckerkandl's tubercle is a pyramidal extension of the thyroid gland, present at the most posterior side of each lobe.
  • Duct (anatomy)
    In anatomy and physiology, a duct is a circumscribed channel leading from an exocrine gland or organ.
  • Esophageal gland
    The esophageal glands are small compound racemose exocrine glands of the mucous type.
  • Preorbital gland
    The preorbital gland is a paired exocrine gland found in many species of hoofed animals, which is homologous to the lacrimal gland found in humans.
  • Apocrine sweat gland
    An apocrine sweat gland (/ˈæpəkrən/, /ˈæpəˌkraɪn/, or /ˈæpəˌkrin/, from Greek apo– "away" and krinein "to separate") is a type of merocrine sweat gland composed of a coiled secretory portion located at the junction of the dermis and subcutaneous fat, from which a straight portion inserts and secretes into the infundibular portion of the hair follicle.
  • Palatine glands
    The palatine glands form a continuous layer on the posterior surface of the mucous membrane of the soft palate and around the uvula.
  • Tubular gland
    If glands are categorized by shape, tubular glands contrast with alveolar glands.
