Endocrine Resource Center
A gland is a discrete and separate soft body made up of a large number of vessels that produce, store, and release -- or "secrete" -- some substance. Some glands secrete their products outside the body, some inside. Those that secrete their products on the inside of the body and, more specifically, secrete hormonal and metabolic substances, are known as endocrine glands. The thyroid is an endocrine gland, as are the parathyroids, the adrenal gland, the pancreas, and the pituitary gland. Endocrinology is the study of endocrine glands. A doctor who specializes in treating patients with endocrine problems is called an "endocrinologist."
