Scientist have found a new organ in the throat

The researchers at the Netherlands Cancer Institute found an organ 1.5 inches in length on average, according to the journal Radiotherapy and Oncology. The researchers reportedly found the new organ accidentally when they were using a combination of CT scans and PET scans to study prostate cancer. The researchers studied images of 100 patients and found that all of them had the glands. The new glands, named tubarial salivary glands, are believed to lubricate and moisten the area of the throat behind the nose and mouth.
