Asked in Human Anatomy and Physiology
How many organs are in the human body?
To answer this question, we have to ask ourselves the question, what is an organ? An organ is a complex structure made up of 2 or more different tissue types. Examples of organs include the skin, each muscle, each bone, a lymph node, a blood vessel, a nerve, the sense organs, etc. Given that there are over 700 muscles in the body and that there are on average 206 bones, there would be well over 1 organ in the body if you include all of the internal organs.
