Thyroid prominence is the Adam’s apple, at the base of notch.
Flares out to protect anterior and lateral larynx
The Thyroid Cartilage is the largest cartilage of the larynx.
It consists of two laminæ the anterior borders of which are fused with each other at an acute angle in the middle line of the neck, and form a subcutaneous projection named the laryngeal prominence ( Adams apple).
This prominence is larger in the males than in the females. Immediately above it the laminæ are separated by a V-shaped notch, the superior thyroid notch.
