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.
