Can a woman have an Adam's apple like Deborah Norville on the show Inside Edition had?

Yes, of course women can have Adam's apples. The medical term for this is laryngeal prominence. An Adam's apple is the joining of the 2 halves of the thyroid cartilage in the larynx (voice box) It's that usually men have a more prominent one, because the 2 laminae (flat cartilages) meet at ninety degrees. However, in women the joint is at 120 degrees, so it's a bit flatter out. All in all it's not like one size fits all. There will be men with less prominent adam's apples, i.e. with a joint of more than 90 degrees, and women with more prominent adam's apples, i.e. a joint of less than 120 degrees.Source(s): Medical School
