Breast Anatomy And Physiology Quiz! Trivia - Quiz

Do you know about breast anatomy, and suppose you can conquer this quiz? The breast is one of two objects situated on the upper ventral region of the torso of primates. In females, it functions as a mammary gland, which generates and secretes milk to feed infants. Both females and males cultivate breasts from the same embryological tissues. If you need to learn about the human breast's anatomy, this quiz can be your guide.
